PEP's mission statement is to enhance the quality of life for older and other vulnerable adults in North Edinburgh by continuing to develop services that enable active community participation, which encourage independence and which measurably reduce isolation. We are committed to an inclusive culture of continuous improvement and to working in partnership with older and other vulnerable adults, local organisations, statutory agencies and other organisations.

Why the community needs us...

PEP is situated in the community of North Edinburgh. We provide day-care services which measurably reduce the isolation of older and other vulnerable adults. These services include five local day-care clubs, a four day mental health provision and a weekend resource for isolated individuals. We enable people to participate in activities that they would not normally have access to; Information and communications technology (ICT) provision, home-care services & volunteering.

PEP also operates a comprehensive community transport service.
