Following a series of racist incidents in our city over the last few months, Stand up to Racism Edinburgh is organising a “Leith Stands Up To Racism” march and rally on October 27 to say refugees and migrants are welcome here and no to racist attacks in our multicultural community.
The march and rally will be followed by a music event in Leith Dockers Club.

Participatory Budgeting has been an important feature of community life in Leith for a number of years, with hundreds of members of community being actively involved local decision making. Leith Links Community Council is proud to have been involved with various Participatory Budgeting processes over recent years including Leith Decides, Community Links Fund and Leith Chooses.
Nationally there has been a concerted effort to encourage & develop Participatory Budgeting and there is now an opportunity for our community to be involved.
A PB Charter would set out clear principles which could be used by strategic managers, those involved in planning PB and by people attending PB events or voting online to ensure that positive outcomes are achieved, and that good quality democratic participation is promoted in every community.
The Charter would be a formal statement of values & principles which will ensure good quality PB in Scotland.
Leith Links Community Council would encourage you take part in the brief survey being undertaken by the Scottish Centre for Developing Communities which can be accessed by clicking here.
