COLLABORATORS

MY EDINBURGH is a collaboration between The Royal Company of Merchants of the City of Edinburgh, Challenges Worldwide and Volunteering Matters.

With a history going back around 700 years, The Merchant Company – as The Royal Company of Merchants of the City of Edinburgh is usually referred to – is one of Scotland’s largest, most respected, charitable organisations. Each year they improve the lives of thousands of people through philanthropy, providing a wide range of educational and social opportunities for business leaders.

Challenges Worldwide exists to enable organisations to work together to address social and environmental challenges globally. Since 1999 they have supported over 5,000 organisations to start and deliver more impact in 78 countries.

Meanwhile Volunteering Matters brings people together to overcome some of society’s most complex issues through the power of volunteering. They partner with communities to overcome adversity, tackling social isolation and loneliness, improving health, developing skills and opportunity and making sure young people can lead change. And because they’re a national charity, they do this at scale, sharing expertise and building partnerships to make an even bigger impact.
