Our clubs may be postponed but our buses are still out and about! We have spent today working alongside 'Scran Academy', 'Prep Table' to provide and distribute meals and donations for isolated and vulnerable people within our community and those self isolating. Safety procedures are being strictly followed to adhere to food hygiene standards and practice.


We are working in collaboration with community groups to deliver free meals for vulnerable people in the North of Edinburgh.

BusesDaycare ClubWeekend ResourceNeighbourhood GroupLiteracyCovid-19

Based on the current COVID – 19 (Corona Virus) situation; PEP received information from the Chief Officer of Edinburgh’s Health and Social Care Partnership.

The council has decided to suspend all their own day centres and step down commissioned day opportunities until further notice. This means that as of 17th March 2020, if you, or someone you care for, regularly attends a day centre, this will no longer continue. The Health and Social Care Partnership will of course review this decision regularly, as they learn more.

All PEP’s day-care services: The Day-care clubs: Monday Dunedin and MAGIC, Tuesday – Smarites, Thursday – Chummy, Friday – Cheery. The Neighbourhood Group Tuesday to Friday and the Saturday and Sunday Weekend Resources.  Also the Tuesday and Thursday Computer Class and the Tuesday Literacy sessions ARE ALL CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Please note that the office itself is remaining open at this time.

The Council also said:

“This will be a difficult time for many people and these are not decisions taken lightly however in the current evolving circumstances, we are struggling to justify bringing vulnerable people together. We cannot in good faith increase the potential risk of harm to you or your loved ones. For this reason, I am certain that you will understand and agree that this is the right decision to be taking just now, based on what we currently know.”

We will notify our service users of any updates. If you have any queries or need assistance please contact PEP on 0131 315 4466

Please stay safe and follow governmental guidance.

A huge thank you to Age Scotland who have awarded PEP a Certificate of Excellence in recognition of our work to ‘combat loneliness and isolation in Scotland’s older people’.

It is always nice to have our work in the community recognised, especially by an organisation who is the leading national authority on older people, age and ageing.

100th Birthday Celebration at the Chummy Club

Aug 25 2015
Daycare Club

This month Mary Richardson reached the fantastic milestone of 100 years old and all her friends from the Chummy Club were there to help her celebrate. Ronny the entertainer came along to the Queensberry Bowling Club to help get the party started. The group enjoyed a lovely lunch prepared by Moira and the club volunteers.

There was singing, dancing, and a huge birthday cake!
It was also Abbies 13th Birthday and it was delightful that they were able to share a party together… 87 years apart!

Thanks to everyone for helping to make Mary’s day so enjoyable.
