In response to Covid -19 Central Church Edinburgh, in partnership with Edinburgh City Mission, saw the need to provide a source of emergency clothing for those most in need in our City. People can find themselves short of clothes for many reasons and in need of a helping hand. The Clothesbank+ can be accessed via our straight-forward online referral form.
If someone has a cough or fever, or are living with someone who displays these symptoms, they can still be referred to us, but should not attend the Clothesbank+.
There are a number of health issues that should be identified in the referral process. Read the Government's guidelines on social distancing for vulnerable adults here.
If anyone has any of these health conditions, please state their health condition on the referral form in the section about "risks to client and volunteer safety", and phone our office (0131-225-9445) to discuss the referral with us.
Anyone with Covid-19 symptoms should not, under any circumstances, attend the Clothesbank+.
Local agencies and practitioners such as doctors, support workers, social workers or church ministers who wish to refer families or individuals for clothing at our Clothesbank+ can do so clicking on the button below.
25/08/21 Update: The Clothesbank+ is moving rooms! It will be closed on Monday 27th September while the stock is moved, but will reopen on Monday 4th October in the shop on the corner of Central Church Edinburgh.Referral Form
Thank you to everyone who has donated to the Clothesbank+. We are so grateful for your generosity.
The Clothesbank+ has sufficient supplies for the moment and is not currently taking donations other than clean, good quality bedding (single and double douvet covers and sheets). We will keep you updated here and on our social media outlets when we are ready to resume receiving donations. In the meantime, thank you for your support!
