Details
North East Edinburgh Care Action Group (NEECAG) is a Forum for older people, carers and those who work with them in the Leith area.

North East Edinburgh Care Action Group (NEECAG) was formed in 1995. The main purpose of the Group is to give older people the opportunity to discuss Health and Community Care issues in a more organised way to make their views known to relevant bodies. Following consultation, key aims and objectives for the group were agreed.

AIM

To improve services for older people in the Leith area through increased consultation and involvement of older people and their carers.

OBJECTIVES

- To enable older people in Leith and surrounds to gain information on Community Care and other services for older people and to raise issues and concerns with relevant professional bodies, as well as helping older people to gain access to services by giving help, advice and encouragement.
- To establish a means of making regular contributions to service planners and providers

MEMBERSHIP

Older people in the Leith area, carers and those who work with them.

Group currently meet in Gordon Court Sheltered Housing Complex on a monthly basis (the first Wednesday of the month) for a cup of tea/coffee, a chat and some lively discussion!
