Funding Update

We are delighted to announce that EaRN has secured funding from the City of Edinburgh Council for the next year.  This is great news, allowing us to make concrete plans for the next twelve months, across our four main areas of work:  raising awareness, community engagement, research, and dialogue. EaRN exists to enable partnership working between the people of Edinburgh and our public services, with the overall aims of advancing equality, promoting human rights, and tackling poverty and inequality, and we are looking forward to progressing this work, and helping more voices be heard, in the coming weeks and months.
