The EVOC Red Book

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

IMPORTANT

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.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE...

We are here for you by phone, email, online or book a time to visit us and if you're already visiting the hospital, just come in. Find out more: maggies.org/coronavirus.

Our priority now is to support people with cancer in the best way we possibly can through this difficult time. Maggie's are here to support you while at home by phone or email.

Maggie's also have an online community, which will be running as normal for peer support and private messaging with our Cancer Support Team. They will also be writing blog posts about the issues around coronavirus and people with cancer. There are video and audio relaxation sessions and breathing exercises, along with lots more information and tips, in our Cancer support section.

Are the centres open?

Yes, we can now support you in all of our centres, except Maggie's at The Royal Free.

Most of our support will still be on the phone and email but we’re here for you in the centres too.

Please call us to make a time to visit so we can make sure there aren’t too many people in the centres at the same time.

But, if you’re already visiting the hospital, just come in.
