Involving carers in shaping services

VOCAL are setting up a new service to get carers involved in shaping mental health services across Edinburgh. This project will start on 1 December 2020. It will:

  • Train carers to become service evaluators and co-produce ways to involve carers
  • Work with mental health practitioners and agencies to better engage with their carer communities when designing, developing or evaluating services.
  • Gather and share carer views on mental health services in Edinburgh.


We are currently developing this service and are recruiting for an engagement officer here. This page will be updated as the service develops – watch this space!
