We plan to use the funding to buy COVID-19 training resources and materials. This will help to educate our trainees in social distancing and safe hygiene measures.

NEW CO-OP APP!
It’s now even easier for Co-op members to support their local community cause by downloading the Co-op app from the App Store or Google Play.
At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Leith, Edinburgh.
We are delighted that All Together Edinburgh has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.
We are raising funds to pay for training materials in our charity shop/training centre. The Co-op local community fund will help us reach this goal.
The All Together charity shop focuses on providing training for people with learning disabilities, creating more opportunities for them to move onto other work. Trainees gain retail and work skills, confidence and an accredited qualification through a recognised training programme. They also receive support to move onto further employment.
Our ethos is to break down barriers to employment and change the way people with disabilities are perceived in society. By bringing everyone together for a common cause, we’re helping to build a more cohesive and understanding community
To help funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op members. When a member buys selected products or services from the Co-op they earn a five per cent reward for themselves, with a further one per cent for local causes like ours.
When a community comes together we’re able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help promote our project. For more information about us, please visit www.alltogetheredinburgh.org.uk or visit our charity shop/training centre, 87 Leith Walk, Edinburgh
