Carers Programme

Carers Programme


We offer a range of courses, access to information and literature on a range of issues relevant to carers. We also organise additional classes such as dance, art, music/singing as well as interesting talks by organisations and individuals who support carers.

Moreover, we offer 1-2-1 support via direct payments/Self Directed support via a dedicated member of staff who is available by appointment.

Finally, carers and cared for can enjoy our excursions as part of a small group on excursions to local venues and places of interest. A member of staff will be present to offer any assistance needed. Transport and entry fees are provided free of charge.



Outings to local venues and places of interest in Edinburgh take place once a month.

This includes free entry and transport – a relaxed and supportive space awaits carers and cared for.

Simply call us on 07394 497173 or email Irene McCarthy at for more information.


We host talks on wide range of issues relevant to carers. This can also be a chance to meet and have a chat over a tea or coffee.


Our drop in courses/classes are free for unpaid carers

In July we began delivering Yoga, Indian Dance and Scotland for Fun as blended sessions, allowing a limited number of attendees to return in person to the Eric Liddell Centre and continued access to the sessions live online via Zoom, for those who don’t want to or aren’t able attend in person. This format has proved to be popular and therefore we will continue to offer blended sessions in our upcoming Autumn Carers Programme.
