The EVOC Red Book

The online directory to find third sector Organisations, and their services across Edinburgh


Only services that are currently available during COVID-19 are listed in the directory.

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.



Circle’s purpose is to improve the lives of children by strengthening families. We work closely with professionals in partner agencies across a range of services and sectors in order to achieve this.

At Circle we often run information sessions for our colleagues who work in other settings and want to know more about what we do. Please contact us if you would like to know more.

Voluntary Sector

As a professional working in a voluntary sector organisation, you may identify families that you are working with where parental substance misuse or parental imprisonment adversely affects members of those families, including the children. Families can be referred to us by your organisation, or you can support them to self-refer to our services. If you would like to chat to us about how a family you know may benefit from our practical strengths-based, solution-focused approach then please get in touch.

Social Work

If you are a social worker and you know a family who could benefit from our service then please get in touch for an initial discussion. It may be a family where a parent is at risk of imprisonment or where a member of the family’s substance use is causing adverse experiences for other family members.


Working in a health setting you may know a family where substance misuse adversely affects the whole family but specifically the children. You may be a GP, District Nurse, Health Visitor, Midwife, CPN or a Health Centre Link Worker. If you would like to chat to us about how a family you know may benefit from our strengths based, solution focused approach then please get in touch.


Working in an educational setting you will know how much children’s experiences at home affect their behaviour and performance in school. Working to agreed personal outcomes we can support families with routines and school attendance.

If you are a Head Teacher then we may be able to help you address the attainment gap in your school. We are currently running a Pupil Equity Fund Pilot Project with two Primary Schools in Edinburgh and we would love to be involved with schools in other parts of the country. Why not get in touch for a chat?
