Big Hearts aims to improve outcomes of people at risk of social isolation in Edinburgh and surrounding areas.
Our programmes are designed to provide free meaningful support to adults and young people 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.
With dedicated helplines and a range of remote support available, Big Hearts continues to help groups most vulnerable during the pandemic.
