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.


Age Scotland

When you need friendship and support call us.

We're here to listen, provide friendship and offer support. Having a conversation can have such a positive impact, we can talk about many things that aren’t coronavirus related, for example current interests, hobbies, previous work life – the list is endless!

When you need friendship and support, please call 0800 12 44 222 to have a chat and schedule a weekly call with one of our friendly volunteers.

It's completely FREE to cal and chat.

Acute loneliness has a significant impact on physical and mental health.

Some older people won't want to tell their families how they feel. But they can tell us.

Our Friendship Line is here for anyone who wants to chat or just to have a friendly ear to listen.

Words matter, give us comfort, wrap us in reassurance and help us stay connected.

Every year, thousands of people call Age Scotland, the national charity for older people.

You can call us about absolutely anything. With Age Scotland, you are not alone.

We're here to listen, provide friendship and offer support. Because words matter.

As well as friendship you can also call us for information and advice on:

- Benefits and entitlements
- Local services and opportunities
- Social Care funding and options
- Housing and Staying Warm
- Legal issues such as Power of Attorney
