Access to Food
As PCHP’s offices are closing to visitors, we can no longer provide access to our Sharing Shelves for the near future.
Other organisations in North West Edinburgh are also affected in various ways but some will still be providing access to food – we have a list of these organisations here, which we will do our best to keep updated with the latest information.
Note on data protection: in response to the challenges presented by coronavirus, PCHP will be pooling resources and information internally to enable us to meet the needs of our clients equitably and to ensure that the vital interests of our most vulnerable clients are met. If you have any questions or concerns, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
