Welcome to Inch House
Activities suspended and community help
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, activities and groups at Inch House are suspended until further notice.
The management committee are sorry, but we all have to contribute to keeping everybody as safe as possible.
To slow down the virus, it is important that everybody isolates and reduces contact to others, even if this is very hard. Please follow the relevant advice (some links below).
We are committed to the Inch community and are trying to find ways how we can give practical support people in the Inch. This is a new and unfamiliar situation. We are learning and don't have any solutions (and will probably make mistakes), and we are linking up with other groups in the neighbourhood.
We are looking for ideas how we, as volunteers, can help. Are there any problems that you face in your daily life under isolation where the community might be able to help? What support can you offer to others? You can contact us by sending us a message via the website or the facebook page.
Here are some useful ressources relevant to the local community:
Inch House Community Centre (Facebook): Up-to-date information
South Edinburgh Mutual Support (Facebook): A local facebook group that aims to build community and help people support each other.
Fact and Fiction (Facebook): A local facebook group that looks at which information is reliable and what is fake news.
Edinburgh Council: Information about schools and council services.
NHS Scotland: Practical advice on social distancing, safe practices etc.
European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC): Up-to-date information about the situation in Europe and worldwide; particularly useful for those of us who have friends or relatives in other countries.
