Commemorating 150 years of supporting the third sector

This year marks the date that EVOC has been campaigning for social justice and supporting the third sector in Edinburgh for 150 years.

We’ve been busy planning an exciting programme of activities and events to commemorate this milestone which have included a fantastic history of EVOC written by our Convener, Joan Fraser, launching our ‘Memory Box’ project and even hosting a reception at the Scottish Parliament.

As part of uncovering the organisation’s rich and unique heritage, we also produced an exhibition which was shown at the Parliament, which is a visual representation and timeline of the history of the third sector and EVOC in Edinburgh.

Invitation to the local community

To coincide with May as Local and Community History month, we are delighted to invite members of the public, volunteers and organisations to a lunchtime viewing of this exhibition here at EVOC.

If you would like to attend, please arrive on Friday 18th May between 12noon and 2:30pm cake and coffee will be provided. We are located on 1st floor, 14 Ashley Place, Edinburgh, EH6 5PX
