This Carers Forum will be an opportunity for carers to meet Edinburgh Carers Council's new CEO, Alison May. We will also be discussing the recent news regarding funding for our independent advocacy services. A statement was posted to our website, which you can also read below:

Edinburgh Carers Council has been funded by city of Edinburgh Council to provide independent advocacy services to unpaid carers since 2012. Unfortunately, this funding will end on 30 June 2023 as the Council has decided to give the funding to another organisation. This means that there will be some changes in our advocacy provision over the next few months. We do not yet have details of these changes but will keep you up to date as we progress discussions with the new organisation.
We are extremely disappointed in this outcome as we feel we have provided a high quality and local service to our carers supporting them through their, often complex and emotional, journeys. We will continue to do this throughout this transfer of services. We have expressed our disappointment to Edinburgh Council and await a response.
If you have any queries or concerns, please contact us at

We will answer any questions you might have around this at the Forum.

As always there will also be the opportunity to raise any other issues that are important to you.

Lunch is provided with teas and coffees available.
