The Hellenic Community of Edinburgh was originally formed as a community group in 2014, before becoming an incorporated charitable organisation in 2018. It was set up by a group of Greeks and Cypriots, Edinburgh permanent residents, so as to fill in an obvious gap: Edinburgh was, at the time, perhaps the only main UK city – and Scottish capital – without a Hellenic Community. As such, the Hellenic minority in Edinburgh was missing any formal representation of its interests to the local and national authorities or otherwise.


In this difficult period, due to Covid-19, the Greek community of Edinburgh wishes everyone to stay safe and look after one another.
