LOOPs – Local Opportunities for Older People

Welcome to the LOOPs Helpline service! If  you or someone you know is looking for information on activities for older people, we will be happy to help. Just give us a call or send us an email.

What is the LOOPs Phoneline?

LOOPsThe LOOPs phone line is a dedicated service to help people who are 65+ living in Edinburgh.

We can help you find groups, clubs, social events and services  in your local area. Friendly advisers will take your call and talk to you about your needs. LOOPs advisors research activities to combat loneliness and isolation for older people in Edinburgh and encourage you to go to exciting places. They’ll get back to you with information as well as details on how to travel to activities. We aim to respond to all enquiries as soon as possible.

The phone line aims to help people maintain a good quality of life. It gives access to information on activities which can help keep us happy, healthy and social!

We’re part of the Local Opportunities for Older People (or LOOPs) initiative. LOOPs is piloting a variety of new and innovative services across Edinburgh, aimed at people aged 65 and over. Together, we hope to improve quality of life for as many as possible. We aim to do this by tackling loneliness and isolation.
