Our Services

Vintage Vibes is an award-winning project tackling isolation and loneliness in Edinburgh.

The project, a partnership between LifeCare Edinburgh and Space & Broomhouse Hub, started in 2015 as a fresh new way to combat isolation and loneliness among over 60s (called VIPs) in Edinburgh. 

Vintage Vibes creates long lasting one-to-one friendships offering support, companionship and the opportunity for lonely VIPs to be more socially connected and active in their local community.

Find out how Vintage Vibes can help and how you can refer someone who is feeling lonely.

We’re looking for volunteers of all ages (17+) from across Edinburgh. Find out how to get involved and volunteer for Vintage Vibes.
