VOCAL is the Voice of Carers Across Lothian - an organisation run by carers for carers. VOCAL's Carer Support Team works with carers on a one-to-one basis to help identify the issues affecting them, and achieve the best possible outcome for carers. VOCAL delivers carer support through two carers centres in Edinburgh and Midlothian, and through staff based in the community. Carers can access the following services: information; advice; support; training; family support; addictions; groupwork; counselling; and advocacy. VOCAL works with carers to identify a plan of support which can include work with other agencies, referral to benefit or power of attorney surgeries and access to a range of training and lifestyle management opportunities.
