Big Hearts is a charity dedicated to improving outcomes of people at risk of social isolation across Edinburgh and surrounding areas.
Our programmes are designed to offer meaningful support for adults and young people who are most vulnerable.
We work in partnership with well-established organisations including the SPFL Trust, Multi-Cultural Family Base, the Scottish Association for Mental Health and Space at Broomhouse Hub.
Amidst Covid-19 and to tackle loneliness and poverty within our local community, Big Hearts is going on the road to deliver Christmas!
With dedicated helplines and a range of remote support available, Big Hearts continues to help groups most vulnerable during the pandemic.
