Living in Harmony aims to create more opportunities for friendships between different ethnic communities in North Edinburgh, and to tackle any barriers which may prevent people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds from accessing local services.
We run a Chat Café for anyone who wants to share food, language, culture or just relax for a couple of hours. There is free childcare available which you should book in advance.
The Chat Café is held at Royston Wardieburn Community Centre (11 Pilton Drive, North Edinburgh, EH5 1NF) from 12pm to 2pm on Mondays (except during school holidays).

“The Living in Harmony project gives out motivation, a sense of belonging and hope. Volunteering with the project brought back my confidence and self-worth.”
Living in Harmony Action Research Report
A group of community researchers looked at the experiences of residents from ethnic minorities backgrounds when accessing services. They wanted to find out about the barriers and challenges the people faced and what could be improved to help more people access services.
You can see both a summary of the findings and the full report in the links below:
We are currently looking to work with volunteers to take forward some of the findings of this report – please see our Volunteering page for details on how you can get involved.
