XR Edinburgh (area)


XR Listeners

XR Edinburgh Listeners are a support network who are available to check-in with any XR rebels across the region who feel the need to talk. This might be after an action, during a stressful time relating to XR, or due to feeling of grief and sadness around the climate crisis.

The support network provides confidential support, a friendly ear and a non-judgemental, safe space where any XR member can express their feelings, process, and reflect through regular conversations and dialogue. It’s not meant to provide prescriptive support nor replace that of professional help, but listeners can help provide information if the individual wishes to explore professional options.

How does the network work?

Following a peer-support system, individual XR Listeners will be paired up with any XR member seeking support. Contact will initally be made through email. Once contact is estabilished, sessions can be arranged, either in person, phone or other preferred method and as often as both feel is appropriate.

How to contact us

This service is here to support any XR member that might need it. If you are not sure whether it is the right thing for you, do get in touch with any questions or concerns you might have.

Ever wondered if you have any rebel neighbours? Now you can join them on postcode Whatsapp groups across the Edinburgh area to organise small local actions and events like flyposting, listening circles, Rebel Ringing (calling up other Rebels to promote big events), or pub nights.
