What is the LOOPs Phoneline?

The LOOPs phone line is a dedicated service to help people who are 65+ living in Edinburgh.

We can help you find groups, clubs, social events and services in your local area. Friendly LOOPs Phoneline advisors will take your call and talk to you about your interests and needs. We research activities to combat loneliness and isolation for older people in Edinburgh and encourage you to go to exciting places. We’ll even give you information on how to get to activities we find for you. The Phoneline aims to help people maintain a good quality of life, giving access to information on activities which can help keep older people happy, healthy and social!


We’re part of the Local Opportunities for Older People initiative covering the whole of Edinburgh and aimed at people aged 65 and over. See how we can help you find something exciting to do by calling us today on 0131 603 8311. We are open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm or outside this time, you can leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Or email us with your request at loops@volunteeredinburgh.org.uk
