Ecas is a charity that supports people in Edinburgh and Lothian who have a physical disability. We have done so for over 100 years: promoting equality, choice and participation through our activities, befriending service and grants. Our activities provide an opportunity to learn new skills and meet like-minded people, our befriending service reduces loneliness and isolation, and our grants support physically disabled people to access things that are otherwise beyond their financial reach.
What Our Clients Say
It was always a great afternoon chatting with Stuart. I find our friendship to be very rewarding. It was a pleasure to be in the company of his character and good humour. We both shareed similar interests and managed to get out to watch his favourite football team play.
We feel confident now and realise we can do things we couldn’t do before but we can do them now!
Thank you Ecas for supporting us to go on a holiday. The cottage has been great: wheelchair accessible with amazing views around.
The Dukan family
(My befriender) brings the outside world in.
Having the opportunity to get in the water and stretch my legs has helped me be more comfortable not only when in the pool but in my day-to-day life.
The group is a fantastic way to come together and talk about things: books; our lives; what’s important to us.
Ecas computer class is the best thing I have done in years. I did not think I would ever learn to use my tablet.
Ecas: a good place to be.
