About The Open Door

We are a local charity promoting inclusion in South Edinburgh. We support vulnerable older people to have fun with friends, and remain as active and independent as possible, through our social clubs and registered day care services. We provide a welcoming space for people who may be feeling lonely or isolated to chat and linger over a hot drink or light lunch in our community cafe. We enable people of diverse ages, abilities and backgrounds to contribute to their local community through volunteering in our day care services, community café and other projects.

We are proud of our reputation for delivering high quality care and support services. We were awarded “Grade 5 – Very Good” for all categories in our last inspection by the Care Inspectorate.

We were founded in 1982 by a retired nurse, Peggy Hunter in conjunction with a number of local churches, and are well-supported by the community with over 50 individuals volunteering with The Open Door every fortnight.
