Pilmeny Development Project (PDP) has been operating in the Lorne Area of Leith since 1979. It is managed by local residents. We run youth groups, intergenerational projects, womens and mens health groups and a volunteering time bank. The aim is to support local residents and groups and to encourage appropriate self-help initiatives towards the identification and resolution of their problems. We work with local people to identify and deliver actions which contribute to sustainable development of both individual and groups in this part of Edinburgh to improve their quality of life.
