English Speaking Union (ESU) has moved into one of the workspaces at Norton Park. ESU Scotland is a unique educational charity and membership organisation dedicated to helping people realise their potential through giving them the skills and confidence in communication to articulate their ideas and share them with others.

The vision is to provide young people in Scotland and internationally with communications skills, confidence and opportunities to engage in an exchange of ideas and opinions. ESU Scotland believe that good communication and cultural exchange is essential to individual, community and global development and understanding. Education is at the very heart of our work.

Central to their mission is a commitment to working with schools and young people to narrow gaps in opportunity and assist in closing the poverty-related attainment gap.
