Bridgend Inspiring Growth

Organisation statement:

BIG is a community owned and run charitable organisation in south Edinburgh with a mission to ensure our now renovated Farmhouse exists as a sustainable community-owned centre for learning, eating and exercise. The full Farmhouse Renovation is now completed with the farmhouse handed over to us and we now progress using our facilities in the farmhouse, workshops and garden.

Commitment to digital participation:

We commit to combat digital exclusion by encouraging and supporting our volunteers to gain and extend digital skills, strengthening their contribution to our project's community benefits and open up new future opportunties for them.

Support offered:

We aim to offer digital skills training both in -house and off-site, to benefit Bridgend's network of volunteers, partner organisations and other local contacts in South Edinburgh (including accessing funding applications, sharing on social media, photography, audio and video/editing training).

Support wanted:

We have a need for more laptops, software for editing, video and audio recording equipment to extend our volunteers' skills and invite others to participate in training.
