ECC Statement re: Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Statement to Edinburgh Carers Council carers, members and partners


Hello everyone,

At Edinburgh Carers Council we are working from current Scottish Government advice on managing our service and safe practice.

We will be;

  • Suspending all collective advocacy and peer groups in March and April
  • Transferring face to face appointments to telephone contact and online contact

Messages will be picked up daily from our main line 0131 322 8480 or you can email us at

Your advocacy worker will keep in touch with you during these restrictions.
The ECC office will be closed to visitors and staff will be working from home wherever possible.

You can make a new referral by phone or email.
We will also provide advocacy at Mental Health Tribunals until further notice.

We will provide updates through our website and regular email information.

Best wishes,

from Ruth, James, Greig, Rachael and Paul (The ECC team)
