THE OPEN DOOR DAYCARE PROJECTS
2016 - ONGOING
The Open Door in Morningside supports older people, people with mental health issues and other vulnerable people in our community.We do this through our social clubs and support services for older people, our community café for everyone, our volunteer placements for people of varying ages and abilities, and our ever changing social groups that include; art, poetry, music and books.
And so began this ecumenical venture that has been a presence in the heart of Morningside, Edinburgh since 1982. The Open Door continues this mission statement today and is on a quest to end social isolation, promote inclusion, help older adults and those with mental health issues. We run 4 day care services, provide advocacy and support services and run a project on the first Sunday of every month called Let’s Eat Together that aims to provide a hot nutritious meal to those that usually eat alone.
