The Heart (and Soul) of Stockbridge, Edinburgh

Bright, and certainly spacious, each week our LifeCare Centre hosts lots of different community activities, events and classes. Great for all ages, our Centre is available for venue hire too. As a result, we regularly welcome any number from a few people to a 150-guest get-together. In other words, we’re super-flexible.

On hand for a smooth hire is the LifeCare team. We’ll make sure you have whatever you need.


Visit our Centre and you’ll discover CaféLife too. Our welcoming community café is just the spot for delicious healthy food and snacks. CaféLife is open Monday-to-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
