The Listening Space (Edinburgh)

The Listening Space is a drop-in service which usually takes place in the main hall of Gilmerton Community Centre. For now, the service has moved online, using the platform Zoom.

We are here to give you a space to be listened to, and to connect with others who will do their best to understand you.

The Listening Space takes place on Wednesdays.

What we can offer:

  • From 1pm – 1:30pm: The space to speak to Health in Mind peer listening volunteers one to one. Volunteers will listen with a compassionate and non-judgemental ear to whatever you want to speak about. We are impartial and respect your confidentiality. We will not provide advice or counselling. 

    At present, because this is happening online, we ask that you let us know in advance if you’d like a one-to-one listening session.
  • From 1:30pm – 3pm: An online peer support group to share, listen, and support each other. There will be discussions and activities exploring how we look after our mental health and wellbeing.
