The Edinburgh Guarantee is an employer led initiative working with businesses of all sizes and across all sectors. We want to work with you to create opportunities for all citizens, regardless of their age or background, with particular focus on supporting those who face additional barriers.
There are many different ways you can support us and we will help you to find a solution that makes sense for your business.
