VOCAL Midlothian

The VOCAL Midlothian carer centre, opened in October 2013, is the hub for carer support in Midlothian.

The VOCAL Midlothian carer support team works with unpaid carers to enable them to support their own needs and help with access the support and services they require. VOCAL also aims to provide carers with social, learning and leisure opportunities to support their caring role or their own wellbeing and interests, and access to breaks from caring through Wee Breaks.

In addition, we offer support to families and friends affected by someone else’s drug or alcohol misuse (Family Support Addictions) and a carer counselling service.
