We offer a number of services. More details about these can be found below.


EDG is always striving to be at the forefront in the development of innovative approaches to support and care of disabled people. We are pleased to announce our project to establish the first ever self-managing care co-operatives in Scotland. 

Carer Groups

The Older Carers Group is an informal group that meets for coffee morning every 3 weeks. As well as offering peer support it provides a chance for carers to meet up, share stories, and socialise. There are also occasional speakers and outings.


The group meets at Juniper Green in the South West of Edinburgh.
