Craft Café – Edinburgh

Craft Cafe

Viewpoint are a provider of supported housing and care services for older people in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife.

In April 2012 Viewpoint opened Edinburgh’s first Craft Café in association with Impact Arts. Generously funded by the Viewpoint Trust, the Café is open to all Viewpoint tenants and care home residents, with Impact Arts providing materials, staff and volunteers.

The Café is open 3 days a week and is a safe, welcoming space for people to socialise and express their creativity. From painting and drawing to jewellery making and sculpture, the Café bridges the gap between care and housing support, creating a vibrant creative space and improving social interaction.

The Craft Cafe was a finalist in the 2014 Dementia Awards.
