Making our community a better place to live, work, play and visit

Fountainbridge Canalside Community Trust

Fountainbridge Canalside Community Trust (FCCT) aims to make our local area a better place to live, work, do business and visit!

Our current activities include:
RE-UNION CANAL BOATS – 3 boats providing funded social inclusion and mental health trips and activities, special events, community group trips and private hires
VOLUNTEERING – activities, training and development opportunities on and around the canal
CANALSIDE WELLBEING WALKING GROUP – weekly walks part of the Scottish Health Walks Network
EDINBURGH CANAL FESTIVAL – our flagship annual event on the third Saturday in June
COMMUNITY EVENTS – we also organise and get involved with other local events, particularly those with a creative or wellbeing focus
CANALSIDE GREENSPACE GROUP – exploring and improving our local greenspace, for people and for nature

Generally we are interested in any opportunities that strengthen our community economically, environmentally or culturally, and promote social inclusion, sustainability and well-being.
