Covid-19 Service UPDATE...

Continued outreach to people in crisis, using all safe methods and recommended guidance, 7 nights a week, 5 lunchtimes a week.

The Care Van provides a source of care and support for vulnerable and homeless people in the centre of Edinburgh every night through:

- Food, hot drinks, blankets & clothes
- Friendship & encouragement
- General advice & information

It is run in partnership with Edinburgh City Mission and serves between 20 and 60 rough sleepers on 363 nights of the year.

Staffed by around 750 people from 42 volunteer teams from churches across Edinburgh and the Lothians, the service relies entirely on volunteers.

Since November 2013 a Lunchtime Care Van service has been in operation, providing sandwiches, snacks and hot drinks to those who are rough sleeping or housed in homeless B&B accommodation by the Council.

The van goes out on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and regularly serves between 40 and 60 people.
