To realise our ambitions for the Greyfriars Charteris Centre, we seek to partner with philanthropists, individual donors, trusts, foundations and corporate partners who share our values and vision. Please contact us if you think you can help.
We give thanks already to Binks Trust, Greyfriars Kirk, All Churches Trust, Salvesen Family Trust, Donald MacDonald, Go For It Fund, CoOp Community Fund, TNL Awards for All, City of Edinburgh Council, plus individual donors through our Crowdfunder scheme that is still live.
Between now and the end of 2020, we are in a redevelopment phase. It's going to be a bit of a pain but will be worth it in the end. Essentially though, we will only have St Ninians Hall, Baillie Meeting Room, and some of our offices available. However, we have access to other spaces that we are managing so don't let the development put you off coming to us for your event. Head to the bookings section for more info.
Essentially, the works will create full accessibility around the whole Centre including a ramped entrance and a lift serving all four floors in a new link building. There will be a central reception area to welcome you and help you get to where you need to go. We're also sorting out the heating and lighting and putting in more toilets including some disability toilets as well. So once completed, our Centre will truly be welcoming and inclusive, providing hospitality - whatever that may be - to all. A real Centre for Community.
