Edinburgh Settlement

Edinburgh Settlements on Leith Walk

Edinburgh Settlement is a part of the international Settlement movement which started over 100 years ago. It forms part of a global network of social action centres which work closely with local communities, representing and responding to needs and aspirations, to promote social and environmental justice.

In late 2010, financial difficulties forced the loss of many of Edinburgh University Settlement’s established community projects. The Edinburgh Settlement continues it’s work, under the auspices of The International Federation of Settlements and Neighbourhood Centres – Europe (IFS-Europe).

A core part of the continuing aim of the initiative is ensuring the safe keeping and provision of access to the extensive archives of the Edinburgh Settlement for research.  Ragged University has offered support to the continuation of the Settlements archive, partly by providing a home to digitize the Settlement archives, thus making them accessible to the public here:
