About The Open Door

We are a local charity promoting inclusion in South Edinburgh.

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.
