Located in the heart of Dalkeith town centre, Midlothian, the charity is primarily designed as a Drop-In centre, with no appointments necessary. Our aim is to advise and support former members of our UK Armed Forces, reservists and their families, throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians, who experience any form of disadvantage post service. We have a small team of dedicated staff readily available to tackle any challenges that present, however minor or complex.

In addition to our core services, we also organise a number of social activities which provide the opportunity to create new friendships, rekindle old ones and indulge in some military banter. We have something for everyone at Lothians Veterans Centre and our membership is continuing to expand. These trips are a great source of enjoyment and are becoming increasingly popular.
