This Christmas, let the carers in our community know that they are stars. They deserve all the support that VOCAL can provide.

We all know someone who focuses their time on caring for a person with addition health needs such as a child with a disability, an elderly parent with dementia, a family member with addiction or life-limiting condition. Especially at this time, their care for the most vulnerable in society is part of the front line in the fight against the pandemic.

If you are a carer, please see our festive programme details for Edinburgh and Midlothian.

By donating a star you are helping VOCAL to reach out to more carers in our community to provide the practical and emotional support to ensure they are resilient and in the best possible physical and mental health to carry out their caring role. Making a staff or company donation? Contact us to see how we can support your team and acknowledge your help.

To make your donation go to our JustGiving page

What your donation can do…..

£5 will enable us to send out an information pack to a new carer contacting us for the first time – not just a set of leaflets but a tailored booklet reflecting their circumstances and identifying next steps.
A gift of £50 can fund a counselling session for a carer in crisis or a special advice surgery session for carers seeking help on issues such as Power of Attorney or Guardianship.
With a £200 donation we can provide an online learning and wellbeing session for a group of carers which will help them be more knowledgeable and resilient in their caring role.
