Pilmeny Development Project - Edinburgh
The overall aim of the Pilmeny Development Project is to support local residents and groups and to encourage appropriate self-help initiatives towards the identification and resolution of their problems.
The organisation has been operating in the Lorne Area of Leith since 1979. Through its work with older people and carers, Pilmeny seeks to encourage their active engagement with a wider range of Community Planning, Health and Community Care service providers to ensure quality 'Joint Future' and joined up arrangements are in place for older people in NE Edinburgh.
The project is also carrying out community action research that involves people of all ages in the area to tackle sectarianism, exploring local older and young people’s experiences of anti-sectarianism in Leith.
