- Carers of East Lothian (CoEL)
CoEL run a number of monthly support groups across East Lothian. These are a great opportunity to meet other people in the same situation and to share experiences. Groups are informal and welcoming – as one carer told CoEL “the friendship, the atmosphere & the interaction between us all is great. The realisation other people have the same difficulties is important. It helps to share problems.”
