Positive Futures (Libertus)

Positive Futures is based in Liberton/Gilmerton and is for people over 50 who want to meet people with similar interests, get out and about and do things. The project offers various groups and activities, including;

  • befriending opportunities for people who are struggling with the confidence to get out
  • early stage dementia groups
  • a community bus service for people that live in the South East of Edinburgh
  • information talks for people who want to live at home for longer

The groups are led by volunteers who organise and help to run activities within the South Edinburgh  area. We are looking for people who are 50+ who are willing to take part in activities or pass on particular interests of skills to others.
