We are a local Edinburgh charity that provides independent, individual, collective and peer advocacy to unpaid carers.

Who is a carer?

A carer may be a family member, partner or friend who supports or cares for a person with mental illness, eating disorders, dementia, learning disabilities, autism and acquired brain injury. Carers may or may not live with the person they support, and they may or may not carry out physical tasks.

We can help if

  • You’re a carer who may require collective, individual, or peer advocacy.
  • You support someone in mental health settings within Lothian who are in a period of transition.
  • You support someone with an eating disorder.
  • You'd like information about Edinburgh mental health services.
  • You’re a carer interested in finding out more about your rights.
