Weekend Resource

The Resource Group is a friendly place open at weekends for those aged 50 and over living in the North Edinburgh Area who are lonely and sometimes cannot cope. For £5.00 a day, PEP offers transport, lunch and a wide range of activities.

The aim of the programme is to provide support, ensure social inclusion and offer fun activities. The group is run by our trained staff member Moira who conducts one-to-one meetings with group members when required. We also offer a range of learning opportunities such as digital photography and computer skills.

Other activities include live musical entertainment, organised outings to places of interest, and shopping trips. The participants also have access to a community garden where they can assist with gentle gardening for the upkeep of the area.
