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.

Housing Support enables vulnerable people to continue to live safely and independently in their communities. CHAI Housing Support staff achieve this by working with service users to develop personalised Support Plans, meeting their individual needs and creatively adapting what we deliver to best fit their individual aims and aspirations.

The Housing Support service is a city-wide service.

CHAI is part of two homeless prevention consortium's, one which includes Cyrenians, Penumbra, Cross Reach and Health in Mind, and the other which includes Four Square, Link Living, Penumbra, and Blackwood. Through these consortium's we deliver the service with Edinburgh City Council. It is possible to self-refer to our service, but the majority of our referrals are now received from Social Workers, health care professionals and homelessness services.

Service User Engagement

We collect regular feedback from our service users to ensure we are meeting those needs and are committed to continuing to develop opportunities for service user engagement in the planning and delivery of the Service.
