The EVOC Red Book

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


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 Servie UPDATE...

Befriending adaptations to include face to face where safe to do so for the people we support, and use of video calling to ensure ongoing regular befriending support.

Normal service details...

Befriending has a huge impact on how well people move on from temporary accommodation and into their own tenancy. Trained volunteers stop the revolving door of homelessness by being at work in communities supporting socially isolated people to settle in their local area and make connections to activities, organisations and key people in their community.

Our staff, volunteers and partner organisations support people collectively and individually who are socially isolated or are on the margins of society.
