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.


Dreghorn Loan Hall

At their regular meetings, plus camps, holidays and other events, Guides can try a wide range of exciting activities - everything from arts, crafts and music to adventurous outdoor activities - giving them the opportunity to develop personally as individuals or as members or leaders of a team of 4-8 other girls (called a Patrol).

With the support of an adult Leader, Guides choose and run some of the activities themselves using themed activity packs.

The Guide programme is divided into five areas:

- Discovery of new experiences and challenges
- Healthy lifestyles
- Global awareness
- Skills and relationships
- Celebrating diversity

Girls can extend their knowledge and skills by working towards interest badges. They can also gain Challenge badges that recognise their participation in guiding over a period of time. The badges build towards the highest award a guide can gain - the Baden-Powell Challenge Award.

Suitable for ages 10 - 14 years.

Guides Unit Leader, please call 07846 740 832.
