For help, advice & support call:
Available Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm
Are you supporting a family member, partner, relative or friend, of any age, who needs help to manage a long term condition, disability, physical or mental health problem or addiction?
Your caring role could be as simple as getting their shopping once a week or you could be responsible for all their every day needs.
You can't always tell if someone is a carer but those providing care and support to family members and friends need support too. You may see yourself as a wife, husband, partner, son daughter, parent, relative or friend. You are also a carer.
VOCAL supports carers in all family or relationship settings, be they defined by kinship, partnership, friendship, affection or obligation.
VOCAL works with carers to identify a plan of support which can include work with other agencies, referral to benefit or power of attorney surgeries and access to a range of training and lifestyle management opportunities.
Many carers are unaware of the support available to them, or what they are entitled to. VOCAL's Carer Support Team works with carers on a one-to-one basis to help identify the issues affecting them, and achieve the best possible outcome for carers. Contact the Edinburgh team on 0131 622 6666 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Contact the Midlothian team on 0131 663 6567 or email email@example.com.
