Community

Our hope is for the Lothian Diary Project to be of support to our community during these difficult times.

On this page we showcase our community partners and describe the opportunities for you to help us #giveback to the community.

Meet our charity partners

We are grateful for the opportunity to work with the following community and charitable organisations. They are helping us to hear the “hidden” stories of more vulnerable, marginalised, or digitally excluded members of our community. By participating in the Lothian Diary project, you can support the incredible work that these organisations do. All you have to do is pick one of our charity partners when prompted during the survey. You’ll still receive your £15 payment, and we’ll also pay an extra £5 to the charity you choose!
