The Gorgie 'Mem' Community Centre provides services to the community of Gorgie, and is a popular, friendly and safe place for locals to meet.
The hall is owned by City of Edinburgh Council, and is leased to the management committee who are a charitable organisation responsible for the running of the centre. The council provides staffing and finances to support the activities and services which enables the hall to be used 7 days a week by a wide range of groups and organisations.

The under 5’s drop-in runs every weekday, and has proved to be a popular local resource. Parents and carers are able to have a chance to meet others, talk about issues and support each other. Their children can play and learn to interact in a safe environment with a range of equipment that is regularly upgraded.
The hall provides regular under 12’s activities in Gorgie during term-time, and also offers a range of activities for this age group and 12+ years during the holidays, e.g. street dancing, arts and crafts and games sessions.
From fitness and well-being to carpet bowls, the hall also provides a wide range of opportunities for adults.
The garden is also a vital focal point of the centre due to the limited green space in Gorgie and the fact that it offers a safe child-friendly place to play.
