Saving the Erskine Building
The Erskine Building at the centre of Dunfermline is a very important part of this ancient Capital's heritage. It holds huge potential as a Community Hub that can be used by both the public, charities and community organisations.
The building is currently undergoing some renovation work to transform it into a safe space where the public can complete courses and workshops that will enhance the lives of local people.
We would like to encourage Businesses and people in our community to get involved by volunteering or sponsoring the renovation of a room in the building or a community project of their choice.
By being part of this project you will contribute to a better future for the most vulnerable people in our society.
How you can support us
Essential repairs are ongoing with the support of volunteers and the donation of some materials, floors, some ceilings have been fixed and the walls are being painted.
This initial support allowed us the renovation of more rooms that are now being used by community groups and to run our projects.
To ensure that the building can be developed further as a truly useful resource for the people of Dunfermline we still need:
DIY and Decoration materials, paint and brushes,
Qualified advice and work
Equipment and Furniture
As a community Hub
Evaluation of the building repairs and materials we need.
As a community Hub
In 2016 the first stage of this development began. With repairs and renovations, we were able to set up our main office in the building.
Now our goal is to provide the community with more spaces and facilities to run creative and positive community activities and events. We believe in our work and in Dunfermline.
To continue this initial work we require critical funding and both the community and Business owner's support. Until now all the repairs have been possible thanks to the kind donations of materials and the hard work of fantastic volunteers.
Yes-U-Are has begun to generate a positive impact in the community by providing volunteer opportunities, alongside its longer-term community projects.
As this work continues Yes-U-Are will continue to seek planning permission and raise the necessary funds to fully complete the refurbishment.
As a token of gratitude, our Sponsors will be advertised all around the building, in all our Social Media and all our events, or a plaque in recognition of your support.
Please Get in touch with us, we are welcome any help.
