EVOC Moving

Edinburgh Voluntary Organisations’ Council (EVOC) is moving to 525 Ferry Road.

After 18 years in its current home at 14 Ashley Place, EVOC will be moving to new premises located at 525 Ferry Road from Monday 29 October 2018. Our main telephone number and email addresses will remain the same.

With the current building due to be demolished, EVOC has been able to secure a spacious and open plan workspace that it will share with other third sector organisations, fostering a spirit of collaboration and partnership working.

Ella Simpson, CEO of EVOC:

“Given that 14 Ashley Place was secured 18 years ago as a temporary home for EVOC, our time here has come to a natural end.

We are very excited to move to new premises and about working creatively within a shared workspace

There is plenty of space for meetings and events in our new home, along with ample car parking and public transport links and we look forward to putting these facilities to use for meetings and training and offering our members access to hot desk facilities.”

Dale Gibson, CEO of Edinburgh Palette:

Amongst others, EVOC will share this new space with Edinburgh Palette, the organisation responsible for the community of makers, designers, artists, creative enterprises and charities initially based at St Margaret’s House.

“EVOC has been very helpful and supportive of the Edinburgh Palette project since its foundation in 2007.

Both organisations are constantly engaged in looking for ways to expand opportunities for people, communities and charities. We are delighted to welcome EVOC to 525 Ferry Road, and are excited by the possibilities this closer association presents.”

‘Open Office’ day

To celebrate, EVOC will be hosting an ‘Open Office’ day on Thursday 6 December between 10.00am and 4.00pm. Guests are invited to enjoy tea and cake and a tour of EVOC’s new home.
