About Wikimedia in Scotland

Wikimedia in Scotland-2013.png

Welcome! to the page for Wikimedia in Scotland, a sub-group of Wikimedia UK working to improve the quality of Scotland-related content across all Wikimedia Foundation projects, and outreach to appropriate cultural institutions within Scotland.

If you share our objectives, please think about getting involved! You can come along to one of our events, join the Scotland email discussion list or UK-wide email discussion list, and even become a member of Wikimedia UK for just £5.

Wikimedia UK is a registered charity that supports and promotes Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects such as Wikimedia Commons. We are supported entirely by voluntary donations – principally through the annual Wikimedia fundraiser. Please note that we are a distinct organisation from the US-based Wikimedia Foundation, and have no control over Wikipedia or other Wikimedia Foundation projects.
