About the Ridge

Originally a single social enterprise, formed in 2012, the scope of the Ridge’s work has expanded to such an extent that in 2017 we have re-structured to become 3 parallel CICs (Community Interest Companies), under a uniting SCIO (Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation.

All parts of the Ridge share the vision of a community connected by the belief that everyone can achieve their true potential

Covid-19 - Dunbar Community Response Group Donations

Thank you very much indeed for considering a donation to The Ridge’s dedicated Covid 19 Community Response Fund. 

In agreement with Dunbar Community Council, we have agreed to handle personal donations to the Fund. 

 We are currently handling all referrals from the nine Community Response Groups in Dunbar and West Barns and direct those in need to local and established agencies that cover:

  • Food Bank
  • Debt Advisory Service
  • Children in need
  • Families in need including those living with a family member with dementia
  • Adult and child mental health
  • Support for health needs

 Your money will be used to support The Ridge in its referral work or you may choose to direct it specifically to an area of particular concern to you.  Funds will be ring-fenced and any funds left over at the end of the Response period will be distributed to the agencies with whom we work.
