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.

Impact is a place for you to meet with your friends and hopefully make new friends. We have loads of activities – football, table tennis, table football, games console and we have a large hall for football and organised games. We also organise fun quizzes, challenges, theme nights and go on occasional trips to the cinema, bowling, pizza nights and laser quest.

Sometimes we ask interesting people from charities, environmental groups etc of interest to young people to speak – always adding a fun element into it.

We have a lounge where young people can relax, chat on comfy couches or watch stuff on big screen / listen to music etc.

We also have a café / tuck shop.

Once a year we offer a trip to a weekend camp to places like Teen Ranch or Lendrick Muir – these weekends are really popular because of the excellent outdoor activities that are organised.

If sitting chatting is more your thing then there is plenty of time for that and our snack bar is open all evening.

If you like to sound of Impact we would love to welcome you any Thursday night, contact Gordon for more details and check out our Facebook page for up to date programme details.
