City of Edinburgh Council: Stop the Closure of the Engine Shed.

This petition had 10,431 supporters

The Edinburgh Engine Shed works with vulnerable young people to help them gain skills, confidence and self esteem to get paid employment through running a café, bakery and shop.
They raise over £245,000 a year from the business but Edinburgh Council are looking at taking away their share of the funding which will leave the Engine Shed with no choice but to close losing both an important service and a valuable community resource for the south of Edinburgh.
We, the undersigned, ask the City Of Edinburgh Council to keep funding the Engine Shed, an important social business that helps young people with learning disabilities and other special needs.
