Edinburgh & West Lothian
Welcome to the Edinburgh and West Lothian Network
During this year, 2021, GWT will be hosting a series of thematic network meetings (usually twice a month) covering a variety of themes. We hope that this will give all members a great opportunity to share practice and ideas with members across Scotland as our geographical boundaries are smaller due to online sessions. All are welcome to come along to any of the thematic meetings. The links will be sent out to you and can also be found under events on the website page and in GWT Thematic Calendar 2021.The link for the calendar can be found here
Go to the events page and book your place at one of our themed network meetings.

Spread Christmas cheer this year
24 November 2022
For many, it’s a busy time of year, and for some it can feel quite lonely. Taking time to chat with neighbours over mince pies, or enjoying a shared meal is a great way to keep connected, which is why Eden are launching The Big Lunch at Christmas this year. Its a good time to bring generations together too.
