The Ripple

Charity registered in Scotland SC024973

The Ripple is an independent community organisation and registered charity which was originally established by St Margaret’s Parish Church in Restalrig in 1996. With the help of around 100 volunteers annually we work to improve the quality of life for residents of all ages in the Restalrig, Lochend and Craigentinny area of Edinburgh, by helping people to help themselves. The areas we serve face significant health inequalities. The Ripple has grown since it was first established and from our base at Restalrig Lochend Community Hub and elsewhere in the community we currently deliver 18 of our own projects, as well as host and/or work in partnership with a range of other relevant community services.
