RESIDENTS ASSOCIATIONS SUPPORT LOCALS

Residents associations across Edinburgh are rallying to support vulnerable locals who may need their help. 

We reproduce a list of those ones in Spurtle's area of operation, with thanks to Simon Holledge who compiled it. 

If you become aware of a constituted body offering similar help anywhere across Spurtleshire, let us know and we'll add details as soon as we have them.

Update

This list first appeared on 26 March. On 30 March, we're now admitting non-constituted bodies, having conducted some rudimentary checks on the phone numbers, addresses, and names of individual organisers.

Please supply these details if wishing to join the list. Sorry – it may seem sniffy and ungrateful, but we are doing as much as we realistically can at short notice to safeguard vulnerable locals from a small minority of chancers.
