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.



There are some things that money can buy and which can make a big difference to quality of life.

Ecas gives out grants to help meet the costs of items or services which you can’t get through welfare benefits and other sources. For example, we’ve helped people buy furniture, white goods and electronic goods; pay for a holiday; meet student fees; and more.

How much we award

Standard: up to £750 (and you can apply again after two years)
Higher: up to £1,500 (and you can apply again after four years)
We occasionally give grants of over £1,500 but this is rare.

What grants are for

Grants can be for anything not covered by statutory sources (government, council, NHS). There are some other things that we don’t give money for. The application form explains what these are.

How long it takes to get a grant

We process applications when we receive them. We aim to let people know what we’ve decided within about eight weeks.

Please see to download a grant application form.
