Fundraise Your Way

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 would you like support?



The Chaplaincy is a place of welcome, providing pastoral and spiritual support for students and staff of all faiths and none. Our calm and creative space at the University is an ideal environment to enjoy personal and spiritual development, for example by practicing mindfulness, tai chi, yoga, and more. We have various worship facilities suitable for a wide variety of faiths, and celebrate numerous religious festivals. The Chaplaincy also campaigns for social, justice, human rights and peace.


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:

  1. To provide excellent legal advice
  2. To support our community
  3. To enhance the learning experience of law students
