The EVOC Red Book

Only services that are currently available during COVID-19 are listed in the directory.

In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available.


Space & Broomhouse Hub

Covid-19 UPDATE...

We are supporting existing carers with emotional and well-being advice and coping strategies, through a direct phone line to the project worker, giving support within a short turn-around.

Our Space for Wellbeing is a friendly and relaxed peer support group, now running on-line.

We are taking new referrals for carers in need in SW Edinburgh, please contact for more information.

Normal service details...

Various speakers and outings are arranged for the group covering a wide variety of topics relevant to carers' needs and interests.

A range of information is available for carers including information about respite, local and national organisations, and formal and informal training courses.

Many carers feel that they are socially isolated and in need of some support, whether it is someone to talk to or a break from caring. By joining one of our Carers' Groups, they often find they can share experiences with other carers who may have similar needs and they are not alone in the world of caring.

By running a support group we hope to give carers the opportunity to come along and meet other people who may be in a similar situation.

We invite everyone who attends to suggest topics or activities that they would like to be covered. This can be information about dementia, medication, benefits, relaxation therapies, coping strategies and any other relevant issues.

This group is for adult carers 18+.

We also run a Peer Support Group for carers which usually runs 2:00pm - 4:00pm once a month.
