Edinburgh facility will support people with long-term health conditions to live life ‘on their own terms’

3DReid has submitted detailed plans for a new community health centre in the Edinburgh neighbourhood of Craigmillar.

The scheme, designed for Scottish charity the Thistle Foundation, will include a 140 sq m activity space overlooking a community garden, a communal kitchen, a craft and wood workshop with lots of natural light, a yoga and tai chi studio and meditation space.

Thistle specialises in promoting health and wellbeing in the community, and helping people with long-term health conditions “live life on their own terms”. It was founded in 1944 to provide homes for disabled ex-servicemen.
