Russian Edinburgh is a recognised Scottish Charity since October 2004 (Scottish Charity Number SC036049). We are a voluntary association with its main purpose to help successful integration of bilingual children and their families to life in Scotland. The centre aims to break down the barriers of social isolation, to build up confidence and create opportunities for skill development for the members of the Russian speaking community. We promote social inclusion and offer an opportunity for open dialogue and exchange of information for our members and anyone interested.
