Over 9,000 carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian put their trust in VOCAL … would you – by becoming a trustee of our charity?
VOCAL is the lead carer support agency in Edinburgh and Midlothian. By 2021, VOCAL seeks to support over 10,000 carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian who care for a family member or friend who is elderly, disabled or in need of support. We build on a strong team of 35 staff and some 70 volunteers.
We are now seeking to strengthen the governance and strategic development of the organisation with new trustees.
