About We Are Wester Hailes

This is a website that has been created collaboratively by organisations and groups working in Wester Hailes.

It is a listings website and portal for people living in the local area to find out easily what activities and groups are happening locally.

Wester Hailes is buzzing with activities, groups and projects! The idea behind We Are Wester Hailes was to create an online space that tells everyone about all of the activities and groups that are happening locally for children, young people, families and adults and across areas such as creativity, gardening, food, sports and much more. Not all the groups working in the area have their own websites so we wanted to create one place where you can see see all the activities going on at a glance.

We Are Wester Hailes was created as part of Wester Hailes Connects, a digital skills project led by Prospect Community Housing with partners SCOREscotland, WHALE Arts, CHAI and Open Heavens Church.

The project was also supported by UKRI as part of a local partnership project Seven Kingdoms, working with Edinburgh Napier University, Wester Hailes Community Trust and WHALE Arts.

The website is now supported by WHALE Arts, however it belongs to the area, and is not owned or controlled by any one organisation or group.
