OUR MISSION STATEMENT The Open Door aims to reduce isolation and loneliness by providing love, friendship, support, inclusion and a sense of community.
The Open Door is a charity based in Morninsgide, Edinburgh, that has been providing support to the elderly, people with mental health issues and others in need for over 35 years. Our ethos is "all are equal, all are welcome".

The charity is run by 7 staff members who are supported by over 80 volunteers. Volunteers come from all walks of life, some with support needs of their own. Ages range from 16 - 80. No one is refused an opportunity to become involved as we believe volunteering to be two way process. We support our local community by providing:
  • A community hub for local groups and the community as a whole. From art groups to yoga.
  • Coffee shop is open 5 days a week, with prices kept intentionally low to promote inclusion for all
  • 4 day care services for the elderly, frail elderly, and some with memory loss.
  • Saturday respite for carers for those with a dementia diagnosis.
