Carers – do you need some time out for yourself over the festive period?

For many carers the festive season can be a time of additional stress as they can find themselves without the usual support from friends, family and public services.

VOCAL will be providing some much-needed support and time out for carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian over three days between Christmas and New Year with a carer café, workshops, a relaxation/chill-out area, group activities, complementary therapies and individual support in person, by email or phone.

The VOCAL carer centres in Edinburgh and Midlothian will be open from 11am-3pm on the following dates:

Feedback from carers

Here’s some feedback from carers who came along last year:

It has been an oasis of calm in a very busy time.

It’s a great idea for a service, just to know it’s open, free and drop-in is supportive. Just having someone offer to make you a cup of tea was something I really appreciated.
