Spring Outlook Newsletter

With the latest Outlook classes on hold, the team at Edinburgh Council are continuing to deliver the monthly newsletters.

Through the newsletters they are aim to offer a balance of practical, creative and informative content on learning, mental health and wellbeing. The Outlook team are grateful for the feedback given on last month's newsletter and look forward to continuing to hear reader views on them.

They are also keen to receive ideas you may have for classes, activities to do at home and ways in which they can offer practical support during the lock down.

They have decided to theme each newsletter, so for May, creative writing has been chosen. They would love to hear about any pieces you write and to receive work that you'd like to feature in future newsletters. In this month's issue, Steven Stewart has kindly submitted a poem.

Submissions don't have to be solely creative writing pieces, they can be anything from art, photos, recipes to general comments. You can get in touch with the team at or or
