The Neighbourhood Group is a day care service for adults with enduring mental health issues and/or learning disabilities in the North West Edinburgh area.

The service is supported by Mandy, our trained community mental health worker, who also provides members with regular 1:1 support as necessary.

Our aim is to provide a friendly and safe environment, promote independence and life skills for older people and other vulnerable adults.

We also aim to increase confidence & reduce isolation and increase socialisation skills through constructive group work.

Our activities include gardening, healthy eating, art, walking, swimming, fitness classes and other recreational activities. The group members are also actively involved in our various fund raising activities.

The Group runs Tuesday - Friday at the PEP centre.

- Tuesdays and Thursdays: open to all individuals with mental health issues
- Wednesdays: open to younger individuals
- Fridays: open to individuals aged 60+ (pick up service also available for an additional cost)


Each member contributes £4.00 per day which pays for transport, activities, tutors, materials, teas, coffees and lunch.
