Bridgend Inspiring Growth (BIG)
BIG is a community owned and run charitable organisation based in south Edinburgh. Their mission is to renovate Bridgend Farmhouse to create a center for Learning, Eating and Exercise. This will provide a community hub along with a variety of activities and services enabling people to live healthier, happier lives and have better relationships with the world around them.
We are a group of professionals (psychologists, educators and psychotherapists) who have come together to establish FENIKS, a project which it is hoped will successfully fill a gap in the psychological services available to the Polish community in Edinburgh. The aim of the project is to help those individuals living away from their homeland in facing the challenges which result from immigration.

Refugee Survival Trust
The Refugee Survival Trust (RST) is a charitable trust, set up in 1996 by a number of concerned individuals.

Abundance Edinburgh is about collecting surplus fruit grown in the city and putting it to good use. There are many fruit trees in Edinburgh, growing wild or in people’s gardens, yet most years a good deal of this produce goes in the bin. We plan to harvest this abundant food and redistribute it to local charities as a way of highlighting the social and health benefits of growing local, seasonal, and organic food. Harvesting the fruit is also a LOT of fun!

Firrhill Dream Garden
The Firrhill Centre in Edinburgh offers a service provision for people with a physical disability. At the Firrhill Dream Garden, the Day Care Centre’s users are now able to access, enjoy and work in, the garden with ease thanks to the creation of raised beds, seating and handrails. The increased biodiversity has made the garden a more appealing place to visit and sit. The pond is a habitat for aquatic invertebrates, frogs and newts, and a water source for birds and mammals. Hedging and the butterfly garden have created a better habitat for attracting birds and insects and the bog garden and meadow have further increased the garden’s wildlife value.
