Upward Mobility Project

About Us Upward Mobility was introduced as a summer project in 2006 by a small group of people who worked with adults with intellectual disabilities. At the time we saw people who were bored and easily distracted often resulting in challenging behaviour. They were not experiencing any of the richness that life has to offer to mainstream society. We saw the solution as simple - workshops, initially Creative Movement, Drama, School of Rock and Art. These workshops all contributed to a documentary film project about our journey entitled 'The Dream of Wong Tong!' (screened at the Cameo Cinema, Edinburgh, in December of 2006). This event raised awareness of our project and secured the continuation of the Upward Mobility Project at the end of the initial pilot phase. Now over 9 years later, the project is running over 70 workshops a week in Creative Arts, Employability and Health and Wellbeing subjects for over 135 students. Based at Edinburgh Palette Artists’ Studios, but with satellite locations across Edinburgh and East Lothian, we offer workshops that enable physical and practical learning. No booking required.

Craigentinny Cancer Support Group (Edinburgh) The Craigentinny Community Centre is the venue for a Cancer Support Group monthly, on Thursday evenings, from Thursday, August 20th. This new initiative targeting the Eastern areas of Edinburgh, and beyond to East Lothian, aims to support everyone who has been touched by cancer, either directly or within the family. Supported by Macmillan, Topic of Cancer representative Marian Anderson set up the group in order to make cancer support available in a more easily accessible venue for people living in and around the Craigentinny area. The Craigentinny Cancer Support Group was launched by the founder of the charity, Nigel Lewis-Baker, who returned to Edinburgh for the first meeting. Nigel, a veteran campaigner for more community involvement in the lives of cancer patients and their families, was last in the city when he undertook the challenging John O’Groats to Lands End walk in aid of the Prostate Project.
