The Portobello Older Peoples Project (POPP) is a voluntary organisation offering high quality day care services to frail and older people in the Portobello area of Edinburgh.
The objects of the Project are to promote the benefit of the frail, elderly people of Portobello and its environs without distinction of political, religious or other opinions. POPP provides the opportunity for ten people each Tuesday and Wednesday to receive a stimulating and enjoyable experience amongst friends.
Transport, snacks and meals are provided along with a range of activities. The Project relies on the support of its dedicated volunteers and employs two part-time organisers. POPP meets in the church hall of Portobello Baptist church. The activities on offer include gentle exercise, outings, games, music, craft work, and invited speakers.
