COEL – Carers Week 2020 Online Events

Information from the Carers of East Lothian :

Dear Resilience Teams,


Carers of East Lothian (COEL) is running a series of free online events to mark Carers Week 2020 (8th to 14th June). Carers Week is a national campaign to raise awareness of unpaid carers, the challenges they face and the contribution they make to our communities. If you feel it is appropriate, please can you share the programme attached on your Facebook page, website or email distribution lists?


The events are also listed on our website and will be publicised on our Facebook page All of the events are free but require internet access. Most of the events require advanced booking.


We realise that not all carers are online. If you are aware of any carers who would like to be involved in Carers Week 2020 activities but who do not have internet access please encourage them to call us on 0131 6650135. We will try to include everyone we can with the resources available to us during lockdown.


Please get in touch with us on 0131 665 0135 if you have any questions about Carers Week or supporting unpaid carers. Thank you for all your help.


Best wishes,




Kirsteen Powell
