EVOC Drop-in for Carers Rights Day

EVOC will be marking Carers Rights Day on Friday 30th November from 11am – 3.30pm by hosting a drop-in wellbeing event for paid and unpaid carers across Edinburgh. This coincides with Edinburgh Carers Council's AGM, though EVOC's event will be longer so anyone who is interested, please consider dropping by!

There will be a small spa space, a chance to try Reiki and yoga, and a free lucky dip with prizes donated by businesses across Edinburgh.

Anyone who has caring responsibilities is invited to attend and this event is open to young carers and adults alike.
Unfortunately, there will be no respite service at this event but carers are welcome to bring the person(s) they care for. The more the merrier! This is a drop-in event and you can join at any point during the times listed, but they would be grateful if you could register to help have a sense of numbers to expect.

The theme of Carers Rights Day this year is Caring for Your Future. The day is organised by Carers UK annually to:
- Make carers aware of their rights
- Let carers know where to get help and support
- Raise awareness of the needs of carers
