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.

The holidays at Strathyre have been offered for over 20 years and are hugely beneficial and enjoyable to those who take part. Despite our previous accommodation at The Sir Andrew Murray House no longer being available, the Edinburgh Branch is still committed to providing holidays for people with dementia and their carers.

We have investigated both catered and self-catering accommodation, around the Callander area and further afield and we believe we have found a place suitable to our needs. It is in catered accommodation with room for four couples and four volunteers and we will be the only guests. The change to catered holidays will obviously increase the costs to guests but we still believe that people will consider the holidays to be excellent value.

We should be able to give more detailed information and possible dates in the near future and in the meantime we are still taking referrals and adding names to the waiting list. Referrals from professionals or self-referrals are accepted.

To fully support the holidays we do urgently need more volunteers. If you would be interested in helping or to find out more information, or to refer for a holiday, please contact:
