The Dove centre is the only dedicated centre for the over 50s in the Wester Hailes area of Edinburgh, seeking to support older people to remain as independent as they can be through a variety of socially inclusive transport, learning, social welfare, activities, health and volunteering opportunities.
The Dove Centre is open to the over 50s and our primary goal is to help maintain the well-being of people in this age group. We provide fully accessible transport for our members who live within our catchment area, offering a door-to-door service from home to the Dove Centre and back again.
If you would like to donate to the Dove Centre you can do so via text message. Simply text Dove 22 followed by the amount you’d like to donate to 70070. So, for example, if you’d like to donate £3, start a new message, text “Dove 22 £3” (without the quotation marks) and send it to 70070. Easy as that! You can donate £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10.
Once you’ve sent your text you’ll receive a confirmation text with information about how to add Gift Aid to your donation. This costs you nothing, but means the Dove Centre could receive an additional 25%.
This service is free for the Dove Centre to use and anyone on any mobile network can use it to donate to us. Your donation will be added to your monthly mobile phone bill or deducted from your mobile phone credit. You won’t be charged for the text message either.
