Calling all carers, we need your views

With new Carer Legislation coming into force in April 2018, you are invited to come along and have your say on how Edinburgh is planning to put it in place for Carers in the capital.

Support Plans, Eligibility Criteria for Service and Self Directed Support budgets will need to be put in place by the Local Authority and NHS Lothian and we want to know what you think.

Please come along and have a look at the proposed Eligibility Criteria for Young Carers and Adult Carers. We need your views and opinions, it is really important to get your feedback at this stage. This will be a table cafe event where we can look at the proposed sections on separate tables and comment on each as we go round.

Th session will be held in G5 on the ground floor in St Margaret’s House, 151 London Road, Edinburgh, EH7 6AE  on Thursday the 24 August from 9.30 to 12.30pm.  When coming in the main front door from London Road G5 is on the left hand side, look for the Swap Shop sign and you will find us 2 doors down from the Swap Shop.

If you are interested in coming along please let us know by phoning Care for Carers office on 0131 661 2077 or by emailing

Tea/coffee and biscuits will be on tap.
