The EVOC Red Book

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

IMPORTANT

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.

Covid-19 UPDATE...

We operate a self-referral food bank, which means that you do not have to get a referral from a professional in order to get a food parcel. This ensures that we can provide support to people who may not be accessing other services, or who do not have the ability to request a referral.

Normal service details...

The Broomhouse Food Bank offers free packs of food to families and individuals in crisis. Supported by your donations of non-perishable food, we are able to make a difference to families living in poverty in our area.

If you are in crisis and need help with emergency food provision, please contact us immediately.

Many of our clients are facing long term crisis situations. The most common reason for service access this year was clients having no money to buy food, often due to benefit delays, sanctions or changes.

We pride ourselves on the holistic nature of the project, and encourage Foodbank clients to engage with our primary services.
