What is The Risk Factory?

The Risk Factory is Scotland's first purpose built interactive safety centre.  It provides high quality, interactive safety education, which will help to prevent accidents and develop active citizenship.

Their core programme is to provide safety education to all mainstream Primary 7 pupils across the Lothian's.  The children are guided round the centre in small groups by volunteers with the building providing realistic settings as backgrounds to allow the delivery of important safety messages.

Venue Hire

The Risk Factory is also an excellent venue for team building and training excercises and is currently used by Police Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council's Health and Social Care department for these purposes.  They also have a number of meeting rooms for hire which vary in size; from their Seminar Room which can seat up to 45 people depending on layout, to their small meeting room which holds 8/10 people.
