Ecas, the voluntary organisation dedicated to giving support to physically disabled people.
As a fun and friendly organisation, Ecas provides all kinds of opportunities for physically disabled people in the Edinburgh area to get together and enjoy themselves. As a help towards costs all clients are asked to pay class fees of £1.15 per hour for their class and, for those who meet a set criteria, they can apply for a grant to assist with transport costs to and from their class.
Ecas activities are fun, friendly and led by trained staff! The groups are very social with the tea and biscuits almost as important as the activity itself.
