Edinburgh Local

Join the Edinburgh Community Engagement Forum

The Edinburgh Community Engagement Forum is an informal, cross-University network that brings together University staff and students who are interested in engaging with local communities.

Anyone is welcome to become a member of the Forum, whether or not they currently have experience in engaging with local communities. Both academic and professional services staff are members of the Forum. We would welcome more student members, who may find it beneficial to find out more about how to work with communities, volunteer or involved members of the public in research. 

The purpose of the Forum is to share best practice with one another and find out how to get involved with community engagement activities. It is also a route for the central University staff who work behind 'Edinburgh Local' - the University's face for local communities - to connect with key people across the University.
