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.

Helping Hands is empowering young people in Edinburgh to transform their lives through physical activity and healthy, productive life choices. Our Bikes For Kids program removes barriers to cycling through collective action in the community.

Covid Response...

Helping Hands decided to bring forward our 2020 Bikes For Kids program as part of our strategic Covid intervention. There is no better way for kids to stay physically active while socially distancing than cycling. Let our kids ride it out!

What We Do...

We offer FREE new bikes to underprivileged kids and bike education and cycling safety classes. Teaching young people how to ride safely and confidently in the city.


This year Helping Hands have topped 600 new bikes distributed to young people in working class communities across Edinburgh. Breaking down geographic, social and economic barriers. Encouraging Fitness, Freedom and Fun.
