Support Us

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!

Our volunteers make up most of our organisation from the Chairman of the Board of Trustees to the volunteers in our coffee shop. We have a variety of roles,  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, however we do need constant 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 our membership scheme.
