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.

Milan provides services for older Asian people from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Mauritius, living in Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Milan means ‘rendezvous’ ‘friendly meeting place’ - the name was chosen by our founder members when we were established in 1991 as a Senior Welfare Council in conjunction with Pilmeny Development Project and Lothian Racial Equality Council. The word is common to the languages of all languages of all four of the communities we serve.
