Impact: making better things happen
Improving the lives of physically disabled people in and around Edinburgh is what counts most when we look back over the last 100 years of Ecas.
We’ve come a long way since then, and done great things. So have our service users and volunteers.
Over the last ten years

We’ve offered even more opportunities by adding reading and creative writing, music for fun, tai chi groups and more swimming sessions.

What people say
I have been a befriender for about two years. I visit an elderly lady and love the stories and chats we have over tea and biscuits. It’s a two-way exchange benefiting me as befriender and her as befriendee. I would recommend Ecas to anyone thinking of volunteering. It is so rewarding.
The art group has given me the opportunity to fulfil a dream.
Ecas has given me confidence, and the belief that I can achieve what I set out to do.
I didn’t have a lot of confidence about going into the sporting world or teaching but Ecas invited me to come along [to the swimming group] and it was really good for me.
