The Living Memory Association was established in 1984. It is an Edinburgh based group that aims to bring people together through reminiscence and oral history work. We encourage people to become actively involved in their community, share their memories, learn from one another, feel valued and respected, and give their knowledge of the past to younger generations. We have a photographic archive and have also been involved in video-making and drama projects.  We offer many varied opportunities to volunteers of all ages and backgrounds and their contribution is vital to the project. Our Big Lottery funded Memory Exchange Project is involving older people in a variety of exciting reminiscence projects.

Ocean Terminal.. We are on the move in February. A new unit opposite Waterstones the bookshop. So don’t get a fright if you find our old unit empty!

A new reminiscence training date 20th Feb. Places available.

All change for this year. Our Big Lottery funding ends for our ‘Memory Exchange’ project at the end of March and we will start our Heritage Lottery Funded work in West Lothian. This project will celebrate Gala days, past and present and we will be working in Broxburn, Whitburn, West Calder, Armadale and Blackridge. We will collaborate with West Lothian Heritage Services.

The LMA is grateful for the continued support from The Scottish Government’s Integrated Care Fund.
