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.

Our free, confidential Advice Line service provides support and information for people living with lung disease, heart disease and stroke. In addition we give advice to families, carers, and health and social care professionals across Scotland.

Our specialist Advice Line nurses provide a supportive listening ear, together with health advice based on Scottish and UK clinical guidelines.

We are able to send free chest, heart and stroke booklets and factsheets, and other related health information, by email or post.

Advice Line Opening hours

The Advice Line is open from Monday to Friday, 9:30am - 4:00pm.

If you contact us when the Advice Line is closed, please leave a message and a nurse will get back to you on the next working day.
