Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre opened on the 5th November 1995 when a small group of local people campaigned for a Neighbourhood Centre to be built within the local area. When the centre first opened we also had a separate Transport Project that operated in partnership with the Neighbourhood Centre.
Since 1995 we have continued to offer a varied programme for Children, Young People, Adults, Older People and Families.
Since the City of Edinburgh Council changed the local Ward Boundaries we are currently based within the Inverleith Neighbourhood Partnership area of Edinburgh and serve a diverse neighbourhood. Our core funding comes from the City of Edinburgh Council in the form of a Revenue Grant and our other funding comes from the Fairer Scotland Fund which is given by the Scottish Government.
The organisation is managed by a voluntary management committee who are elected each year at our AGM. The management committee are solely responsible for the strategic development and overview of the Organisation. The management committee employ a staff team who are responsible for the day to day running of the Organisation.
