We’d like to formally introduce ourselves to those of you who may have recently visited the Eric Liddell Centre, or indeed to those who may not be familiar with us.
We are a community hub where you may occasionally stop in for a coffee or take the kids along to one of our classes.
Every week, 70 of Edinburgh’s most vulnerable pensioners use our Dementia Day Care service. This valuable service allows our clients to retain quality of life by taking part in stimulating activities and being provided a healthy meal.
It also allows carers to take a break from their demanding roles – our befriending service also provides some respite for carers by pairing them with trained volunteers who can offer them companionship.
An appeal from you can allow us to continue to be a valuable community resource for South West Edinburgh as well as a provider of support for those people touched by a diagnosis of dementia.
You can donate to our appeal on JustGiving at:
Alternatively, you can donate via text by sending ERIC15 and the amount to 70070
