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.

Normal service details...

Older LGBT people have lived through much less tolerant times making their journey towards self-acceptance, a long and arduous one that impacted their confidence, self-esteem and wellbeing. Nowadays, older LGBT people often have diminished support networks resulting in an increased sense of vulnerability and anxiety about ageing.

LGBT Age works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people aged 50 and over in Greater Glasgow and the Lothians to shape support services and resources for older LGBT people including social events, community activism, resources and volunteering opportunities.
