EaRN is hosted by Volunteer Edinburgh and managed by two part-time staff. The network is funded by the City of Edinburgh Council and NHS Lothian.
Membership is open to organisations working in equalities related fields, and individuals who can join in either a professional or personal capacity. By joining as a member you will join over 180 like-minded individuals and organisations and together we can work towards advancing equality, promoting human rights and tackling inequality and poverty in Edinburgh.
Projects and Events
