Helping the local community
The University of Edinburgh is for everyone. Our staff and students work with our local communities on a variety of interesting projects. What project would you like support?
Free Legal Advice Centre
The Free Legal Advice Centre (FLAC) is the first and only student-run free legal advice centre in Edinburgh and provides access to justice to those who, for whatever reason, cannot access legal advice elsewhere.
It also gives law students at the University of Edinburgh an opportunity to put their legal knowledge and skills into practice. As well as traditional studies, students are given the opportunity to interact with and help real people from our community, advising on live legal issues under the supervision and guidance of law school staff and colleagues working in practice.
All the money received through your fundraising activity will help FLAC achieve its core aims:
- To provide excellent legal advice
- To support our community
- To enhance the learning experience of law students
Hope Park Counselling Centre
Hope Park Counselling Centre is a life-line for adults living in the Edinburgh community. The Centre offers a safe and confidential place to work through issues such as anxiety, depression, abuse, work challenges and relationship difficulties.
Hope Park also gives invaluable hands on experience to student counsellors in training who are studying at the University of Edinburgh. It is only with your support they are able to access this invaluable hands on experience.
The money received through your fundraising activity will help support the continuing professional development of Hope Park students.
All4Paws is a free pop-up clinic in Edinburgh for pets of homeless and vulnerably-housed people. The clinic is run by students and staff of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and is only able to continue providing much needed services such as vaccinations, deworming treatments and flea treatments with support from people like you. Students are also on hand to give advice on pet health and behavioural issues and, with you by our side, pet owners have access to basic resources such as pet food, winter jackets, collars and leashes.
All the money received through your fundraising activity will help All4Paws continue to provide this vital support.
