The EVOC Red Book

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


Directory of local groups/projects who are offering specific support during the current COVID-19 pandemic »

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 or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

Barclay Viewforth is one of several churches, which help support the Edinburgh City Mission’s Basics Bank (BB) by supplying groceries and hygiene items and with prayer.

The Help Cafe meets every Friday morning at Bruntsfield Evangelical Church (BEC) where, in addition to food and toiletries, people are provided with practical help for problems and a listening, sympathetic ear. Those helped are people of all ages, who are facing enormous difficulties in their lives for a variety of reasons including unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, debt, domestic abuse and social payment shortfalls.

By making God’s love known and by helping in a non -threatening way, people’s lives can be changed. Support of any kind, including prayer, donations of food and toiletries* and attendance on a Friday at the Help Cafe, is always welcome.
