Grassmarket Community Project usually achieves 65% of the income it needs to continue through social enterprise. At present social enterprise activities are extremely limited, some are entirely closed, and income has been vastly reduced. This income usually subsidises much of the charitable programme GCP undertakes more widely. GCP will struggle to provide on-going support to vulnerable community members without ongoing support from our friends and supporters. We need your help to ensure critical services and support can continue including hot meals, distribution of essential items (toiletries etc), provision of digital support and equipment to overcome the “digital divide”, one to one support for individual practical, emotional and psychological needs, group activities and therapies and much more.
Earlier this year our friends helped raise £2,500 to help meet short term crisis costs. We still need help to ensure these services can continue, especially during periods of social and economic restrictions, until we are open to visitors and social enterprise activity once more. Help us to raise another £5,000 this autumn going into and through winter, when we know the meaningful community, warmth and friendship, and ensuring no one is forgotten, will be even more acutely needed by our vulnerable members.
Can you help? Please, if you can make a donation to our project's 'Plan C' funding to help us get through this period and support us into the next we would be exceptionally grateful.
