Run for VOCAL - Voice of Carers Across Lothian >




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. In return for a charity place, all we ask of you is to raise a minimum of £250 if you run the half marathon, £400 if you run the marathon or £500 per team running in the Hairy Haggis relay. 

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