We are a charitable Trust whose main mission is to address problems of social exclusion as a consequence of poverty, hunger, loneliness and homelessness as well as ministering to those who have, or have had, problems with substance abuse. Our principal aims are the relief of those in need, the advancement of the Christian religion and promotion of religious harmony on an undenominational basis and the advancement of citizenship and community development. To achieve this we are able to offer advice and grant assistance to organisations that meet these principles, primarily within the local community.

About the Grassmarket Mission

Established in 1886 our main mission is to address problems of social exclusion as a consequence of poverty, hunger, loneliness and homelesness. We do so on a non-denominational basis to advance citizenship and community development.

To facilitate this, we offer grant assistance to organisations that meet these principles, primarily within the local community. In 2009, in conjunction with Greyfriars Kirk, The Mission jointly set up and funded the Grassmarket Community Project and that close relationship continues today.

The Mission now seeks two new trustees to join the current Board of six members. The role of Honorary Secretary will become vacant in March 2020 and, as such, good organisational and administrative skills would be required. In addition, we are looking for individuals who are interested in the advancement of opportunities to support some of the city’s most vulnerable residents, to enhance their lives and achieve their potential; despite past or current adversity.
