Help us support and empower unpaid carers


VOCAL supports and empowers unpaid carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian. We support over 8,500 carers each year through access to information and practical advice; emotional support and counselling; training and peer support groups; social opportunities and respite; welfare benefit and legal advice surgeries.

VOCAL is embarking on an exciting new venture to launch a Community Carers Hub in Leith in 2018. With over 37,000 unpaid carers in Edinburgh, we want to create a safe haven where carers can receive tailored support in their time of need. Your participation in this event would support the development of our new Carers Hub.  

You can make a real difference to the lives of carers.

We offer all our runners a VOCAL t-shirt, individual fundraising support/merchandise and a guided tour of our new Carers Hub in 2018. 

Thank you for considering to run for VOCAL, your support is greatly appreciated.
