Give a little of your time or money to keep us going strong

The Open Door has been in the heart of Morningside, Edinburgh for over 30 years and with your help, we hope to continue for another 30!

Every month over 1,650 people regularly use The Open Door; that’s over 19,800 a year and approximately 9,250 volunteer hours! Our volunteers are made up of everyone from the Chairman of the Board to the lady or gentleman serving your tea! We have a variety of roles, all of which suit someone. Find out more about what volunteering can do for us and for you.

Volunteering is the backbone of what we do and we would not be here without it, but we also need other financial support.

People often think that, as charities are run mainly by volunteers, it must costs very little to provide the service – this is a misconception. Charities have many of the same costs as businesses and like good businesses we have to maintain viability, so every penny must be spent wisely and with maximum returns.

We greatly rely on support from individuals and businesses through donations and the Membership scheme.
