Prestonfield & District Neighbourhood Workers Project
Supporting Older People to Live Independently in the Community
Prestonfield Neighbourhood Project was set up in 1988 initially to provide advice and information for older people in the Community of South and Central Edinburgh. To meet the need identified by the Neighbourhood Workers, of having somewhere to allow people to meet and be socially active thus reducing the social isolation older people faced, the Project fundraised and Prestonfield Neighbourhood Centre was built in 1995 and continues to provide services for older people in the Community.
Some new funding is enabling the Project to introduce new services that will help people to live longer and healthier lives.
A hot nutritious meal is provided each day at the centre and the activities planned, in consultation with our older people, will support them to enjoy as creative and fulfilling a life as possible as they grow older.
