Volunteer Centre Edinburgh has Moved!

Exciting news! Volunteer Centre Edinburgh has moved to a lovely new home that we can call our own!

While our Main Office is now based on Leith Walk then it continues to be business as usual for our organisation which serves the whole of this wonderful city and always will!

There will naturally be some disruption to our usual services while we settle in so please bear with us, and in the meantime please call ahead on 0131 225 0630, email us at admin@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk, or check our Contact Us page for the latest details if you can.

If you are looking for information and advice on volunteering then we have a temporary service available on the First Floor of our new premises. If you require wheelchair access then please call us on the number above and one of our friendly members of staff will assist you.

Update on Thursday afternoon Drop-in Information Sessions
The Health & Wellbeing Team will not be running their Thursday afternoon drop-in until the end of July at the earliest, so please call 0131 561 8307 or email Sarah Cleary at sarah.cleary@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk if you would like to make an appointment to speak to one of the Heath & Wellbeing Team Advisors.
