The Autonomous Centre of Edinburgh (ACE) exists to support and encourage people to take more control of their lives. We believe in people co-operating as equals to create a shared world free from exploitation. We work together in the spirit of mutual aid.
ACE is a self-managed social resource centre open to groups & individuals trying to make a better society and improve their lives.
If you have a project you want to get off the ground but are struggling for lack of resources, ACE is the place for you.
Check out the ‘groups & activities’ page at http://autonomous.org.uk/groups-activities to see those who are already based here. Our groups welcome contact from those who’d like to get involved.
ACE is open every Tuesday from 12:00 - 3:00pmpm for the Edinburgh Claimants / Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty drop-in advice and solidarity session which covers debt, dole, work, council and housing hassles. We’re also open on the last Thursday of the month 6:00pm - 8:00pm and the first Saturday of the month 1:00pm - 4:00pmpm.
We also hold events outside these hours many of which are open to the public: check out our events page at http://autonomous.org.uk/events for details.
We are child friendly and wheelchair accessible and abide by a ‘Safer Spaces’ policy.
