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.

The befriending / outreach service seeks to meet the needs of four communities; India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Mauritius, living in Lothians.
