Provider's Name: Prestonfield Neighbourhood Project

Type: Charity/Voluntary

Prestonfield Neighbourhood Project was set up in 1988 initially to provide advice and information for older people in the Community of South and Central Edinburgh. To meet the need identified by the Neighbourhood Workers, of having somewhere to allow people to meet and be socially active thus reducing the social isolation older people faced, the Project fundraised and Prestonfield Neighbourhood Centre was built in 1995 and continues to provide services for older people in the Community.
