Volunteering opportunities in the North of the city

What is VINE?

Volunteering in North Edinburgh or VINE is our hub for volunteering in the North of the city. The hub is based at North Edinburgh Arts and we facilitate a number of groups including the Chat Cafe and Knit and Natter.

Knit and Natter

On Wednesday mornings, Volunteering in North Edinburgh (VINE) support the Knit and Natter group at North Edinburgh Arts and we are fortunate to be able to contribute to the recording of information for the Artist in Residence from Edinburgh International Book Festival who is based at North Edinburgh Arts.

Sharing of photos during the knitting session produced more ‘nattering’ and tales from the past. It is a great opportunity to have a skilled writer recording stories from the group and building up personal histories especially as so many of the local people have encountered so much sadness through their lives and the gathering of stories is in a very sensitive manner. This is a terrific project to contribute to in North Edinburgh.
