Latest News From EDG
EDG received the excellent news that we will be continuing to be funded to support unpaid family carers.
On the 1st January 2021 we became part of a local partnership called the Parent Carewell Partnership (The Action Group (advice services) , EDG, FAIR and VOCAL).
This has become possible because as long as new duties
there is additional funding paid to local authorities, here in Edinburgh we needed to tender for these monies. Parent Carewell Partnership winning this tender has secured 5 years with potential further 3 years.
EDG will continue to offer parent / family carers support and advice as we have always done with the team member who knows you best. In addition, we will be in touch to offer an adult carers support plan.
