When you are looking after a family member or friend, it can be good to meet up with other people who are caring too and understand what it’s like.
We have several carer support groups throughout East Lothian, providing an opportunity for you to take time out and enjoy a chat and a coffee in peaceful surroundings.
We currently support the groups listed below. If there is not a group in your area, and you are interested in starting a group, we are always happy to help with the start up and provide ongoing support.
Meet in the Open Arms Hotel on the first Tuesday of every month at 10.30am.
Meet in Nether Abbey Hotel on the second Tuesday of every month at 10.30am.
Meet in Belhaven Church on the second Wednesday of every month at 10.30am.
Meet in Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre on the last Wednesday of the month at 10.00am.
Meet in Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre on the second Thursday of the month at 10.30am.
If you are interested in going along to any of the groups you would be assured of a very friendly welcome. If you feel you would like to speak to someone first, please call the Carers Centre on 0131 665 0135 for a friendly and informal chat.
