Member Organisations

Edinburgh’s third sector represents a broad range of organisations from small local groups to large national institutions. Working with many of the most vulnerable people in the city across a variety of areas, we believe that a strong commitment to equalities and human rights should lie at the heart of everything the sector does. That is why we welcome organisation members from a huge cross-section of fields all of whom have a commitment to advancing equalities and working in partnership with the public sector.

Follow all the latest news on our member Twitter pages. Share your #MyEquality and help spread the word about Equality and Rights across the city.
