"I never realised being an old person was so much fun."
Cyrenians currently operate services in Edinburgh and West Lothian Council areas which support older people to lead active, independent lives within the local community:
Our dedicated teams of volunteers provide social support and companionship to people aged 60 and over, offering encouragement to engage in social, leisure, community and physical activities and to enjoy life to the full.
In 2018, we supported 743 older people in the Edinburgh and West Lothian areas. 96 volunteers gave their valuable time and contributed a total of 8433 volunteering hours within our services!
We positively promote active and healthy ageing, supported by the following organisations:
Edinburgh — National Lottery Community Fund and Edinburgh Joint Integration Board
West Lothian — West Lothian Council, West Lothian Health & Social Care Partnership and NHS Lothian
