Support for Carers

We know that caring for others, whether that's your friends, families, or neighbours, can be isolating and difficult. It is often hard for carers to find the time to take care of themselves and connect with others too. 

That's why we are delivering support for carers as a partner in the Carewell Health and Wellbeing Partnership. This partnership is a new joint initiative between ourselves, VOCAL Edinburgh, Eric Liddell Centre and Milan Senior Welfare. 

We are offering a range of courses and peer spaces to support the mental health and wellbeing of carers. These safe spaces will allow carers the time to explore and discover ways of keeping well and to be able to connect to a wider community of carers and experience peer support.

Do you have experience of caring for someone and would you like to support others? We are also looking for volunteers and people to be involved in the development of our carer services.

This takes place online on Zoom every Tuesday from 1.00 - 3.00pm.
