The Open Door



Dear all,

We have been informed this morning (Monday 16th March) of the Edinburgh Health and Social Care Partnership’s decision to suspend their own day centres and step down commissioned day opportunities until further notice.

As such we are stopping our day care services immediately, including our Tuesday Good Neighbour Club, Thursday Club, Friday Senior Men’s Group, and Saturday Break services.

The most recent information from NHS Inform is attached below along with links to other sources of information. The main thing we can do is wash our hands as advised, use and dispose of tissues, and follow the guidance.

Stay healthy and please feel reassured that we have your wellbeing at heart.

Best wishes
Simon Warr
Operational Manager

We have taken down the rest of this site during the present emergency. New information about changes to arrangements may be added to this page from time to time.

We are continuing to suppport all our clients remotely with regular phone calls to check on their welfare and needs and take appropriate action if required, to suggest activities for them, and just to chat. Telephone chatting is more important than it has ever been for those isolated in their own homes. If we can’t see a friendly face we all very much appreciate a friendly voice on the line.
