re:discover Edinburgh

Supporting people in North West, South East and South West Edinburgh to make connections with people, activities and groups in their community. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have temporarily changed to distanced support.  

Our connecting service, re:discover, is for anyone aged 18 and over who is feeling isolated and would like to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

The service offers support for up to six months. People are supported by a trained volunteer who offers support to build confidence, meet new people and connect into local groups and activities. Currently, people will be offered social support and wellbeing tools via phone and video calls, with the potential for some face-to-face support depending on Government guidelines. 

Our trained volunteers will now:

  • Provide social support via weekly phone or video calls (30-60 minutes)
  • Support people by using the Five Ways to wellbeing 
  • Be curious about each person's interests and hobbies and will seek to find resources for them to explore that from home
  • Provide support to find potential online groups and resources, and may initially 'attend' with the person until they find something they feel comfortable attending regularly. 

How to access the service?

You can self refer or be referred by someone else.
