Memory Book Project

We are delighted to have received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s ‘Stories, Stones and Bones’ funding stream to produce a short film, Memory Book and archive documenting the heritage of the buildings we have inhabited, of the community we are and of how the two are related.  The project is about where we were, where we are and where we are going.

We are currently recruiting a Development Worker to lead the project during June – September. The post involves working 30 days (to be agreed in advance) during June, July, August and September.  For a full Job Description and Application form or for further information, please e:mail or call 0131 661 9292.


Link Up AGM and Exhibition – a beautiful evening!

by laura


What a fabulous evening we had during and after our AGM on 14 October.  We heard the story of the quilt, a song about friendship, a Choral Quilt by our Writing Group and a story of hope – all created and performed by members of our Link Up Community.

The Exhibition is still up – come along and have a look, read some wonderful poetry and take away a copy of our Annual Report 2016 to read Lorna’s Story about our quilt and her mental health journey.
