VOCAL is the leading carer organisation in the Lothians supporting over 9,000 unpaid family carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian. Family carers provide unpaid care to a partner, parent, relative or friend of any age who needs help to manage a long term condition, disability, physical or mental health problem or addiction.
This year marks 25 years of VOCAL supporting carers. In April 1994, we started as a small charity with a mission to provide support to carers across the city. Today we support over 9,000 carers with 35 staff and over 70 volunteers!
We offer all our runners a VOCAL t-shirt, individual fundraising support/merchandise and a guided tour of the Edinburgh Carers' Hub. In return for a charity place, all we ask of you is to raise a minimum of £250.
Thank you for considering to run for VOCAL, your support is greatly appreciated.
