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.

Do you have children aged 0-5? Do you like cake?

If so, come along to Pink & Blue Playgroup for parents and tots for play and a chat. The group is very informal and all are welcome. Good fun, good coffee, good times!

A fun, down-to-earth group for all mothers and toddlers with play time, snacks and delicious home-baked cake…

Every Friday, Pink & Blue opens its doors to all mothers and children (from newborn to pre-school). Everyone is welcome to drop in any time and stay as long - or as short - as they like! The group runs through school terms and all through the holidays if required.

Numbers vary from 4-10 mums – at the moment, a few are ‘Buccleuch mums’, their friends and wives of students at Edinburgh University. We’re a multi-cultural, international group – countries currently represented are America, Chile, England, Scotland and Tunisia!

The group involves a play/chat and then a snack around 10.30am. Coffee (a lot of..!) and snacks including baking are provided every week. ‘Buccleuch mums’ always provide the food. (Of course, if you’d like to bring along more cake, we won’t protest…)

The group is completely free of charge. In our experience, all attendees, past and present, enjoy keeping in touch with each other through our Facebook page ( which also provides useful updates and holiday dates.

We meet in the Buccleuch church hall.

Please feel free to drop in and meet some new friends!

This is a self run community group that use the church's facilities.
