Edinburgh Crisis Centre – Charity Auction Appeal

Edinburgh Crisis Centre is based in Leith.  We are a mental health charity supporting Edinburgh residents aged 16 years and over who are in mental health distress. We are the only crisis centre in Scotland that provides 24hr support via phone, email and text as well as offering face to face support.  Additionally, we have accommodation for people at risk of suicide where they can stay for up to a week in a safe environment and receive support from safe 24hrs a day.

Being a charity we rely on fundraising events in order to keep improving the environment of the centre and to make it as safe and relaxed as possible for people visiting the centre. With previous fundraising events we have been able to install a new kitchen and start an art group and writing group which we have recently won an ‘Inspiring Edinburgh’ award for our willing and able volunteers.

We are looking for donations of artwork.  We are looking to hold a charity auction at the end of the year and an item such as this would be gratefully received.

Re-opening of the Swap Shop

HUGE apologies for the swap shop being closed so much recently. This is mainly been due to a larger then usual number of donations/people moving out of the building as well as usual donations.

When so much is donated at once it gets untidy and unmanageable with items strewn about the floor making it unsafe. This can take ages to sort out with limited volunteer hours available.
