The EVOC Red Book

The online directory to find third sector Organisations, and their services across Edinburgh


Only services that are currently available during COVID-19 are listed in the directory.

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available.

Previously known as Update, we re-branded in 2015 to ensure that our purpose was clear and easily understood to all.

Disability Information Scotland helps to guide people through the maze of disability information.

We offer information via:

- A telephone helpline.
- Text and email services.
- Our website.
- Our online Scottish Disability Directory.
- A range of information guides and other resources.

We work with disabled people, their families, friends, carers and people who work in the sector.
