Able Arts CIC provides autistic people and people with learning disabilities experience in the creative industries. Artists get the opportunity to sell the art they create and receive 50% of the profit.

Founded in 2020, Able Arts initially provided discounted art workshops for people with additional support needs. Participating artists had the opportunity to sell their artwork. Throughout the pandemic, Able Arts changed their model and offered art competitions to local people. Artists with learning disabilities and autism participating in these contests have been able to sell their art, build their confidence and develop employability skills.

Able Arts worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the fantastic artist Georgia Yuill to create a drawing for the project.

Edinburgh North East Foodbank and Edinburgh South East Foodbank are organisations seeded by the Trussell Trust that provide invaluable services to the local community. They help individuals and families in crisis, through the provision of emergency food supplies. 

We worked with Edinburgh NE Foodbank and Edinburgh SE Foodbank during our 2021 Reverse Advent Calendar Campaign. The project encouraged people to donate a specific item to their local food bank every day leading up to Christmas. We created a resource hub on our website with information about food banks across the country and promoted our free donation tracker to help people support their local food bank.
