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.



Licketyspit is delivering a framework of quality online engagement for/with families with children under-twelve to support play, learning and wellbeing during the Coronavirus lockdown - e.g Licketyspit Children's Guide to Coronavirus 2 Lockdown - This has also been translated into Polish, Spanish and Arabic (All on Youtube/Facebook)

Rooted in dialogue/provision for our currently 800 member families, Licketyspit's Children & Families Network (CFN) is open to all. Many CFN families are ethnic minority including refugees. We will also be supporting our Storyplay Schools (Storyplay supports schools addressing poverty associated attainment gap to foster a children's human rights based language-rich culture across a whole school community.) with online engagement/creative learning resources to send home. Licketyspit's high quality resources can potentially be shared Edinburgh-wide to support distance learning, health & well-being.

We are seeking funds to enable us to offer Licketyspit Playcard sets, children's books and art materials to disadvantaged families via food banks/partners - please get in touch if you would like to collaborate on this.

We are also signposting CFN families to other support (e.g. food delivery, emergency food parcels, financial advice).

Online Play sessions...

We may all be stuck inside, but we can still see each other and chat online. We’re even doing some online play sessions!
