Over thirty organisations are taking part with one off, occasional & regular volunteering opportunities in Leith and the wider Edinburgh area.

Free stuff

Leith Community Centre has a massive amount of good quality essential household items and adult / young adult clothing looking for a new home on 19th & 20th October 2019.

Anyone can come & help themselves to anything they need, free of charge, regardless of their income or circumstances.

Leith Community Centre extends opening hours

Leith Community Centre (Where Leith Links Community Council holds its regular monthly meetings) is extending its opening hours from Monday 2 September 2019.

Leith Creative recently described Leith Community Centre as the town hall for Leith.

The Community Centre is managed through a partnership between Leith Community Centre Association SCIO and City of Edinburgh Council. For fifty years the Community Centre in the Newkirkgate has been supporting the Leith community to access opportunities to learn and be active. The centre provides eight rooms & halls for community activities such as adult education classes, sports, exercise & dance classes & activities, local community & interest groups and even hosts the annual Leith Chooses voting event.

From Monday 2 September 2019 the new opening hours will be:

  • Monday to Friday: 9am – 9pm
  • Saturday & Sunday: 9am – 5pm

In order to support new community groups & activities to take advantage of the new Sunday opening there is a special Sunday offer for new regular bookings, entitling them to up to two hours per Sunday free for the first four weeks providing their booking starts in September.

The centre still has availability through the week, and on weekends.
