Andrew Tweedy, director of CoEL writes
My colleague Kirsteen has been collating information about local resilience resources in East Lothian which CoEL is using to connect carers to local support as necessary. While there our focus is on support that would be relevant for carers, we wanted to share this with others as it will be of relevance to all of us. It is also a live document so please do let my colleague Kirsteen know if there are other groups who should be included or any other issues and if you have your own listing please let us know and we will try to collate them all. It is worth flagging that groups noted in Red are “official” groups covered operating under cover of East Lothian Council insurance – others are informal groups who have come together in response to Coronavirus.
FYI – CoEL is continuing to support carers locally but we are working from home and not doing visits. Our contact details remain unchanged as all phones are forwarded onto staff mobiles etc.
Let us know if there is anything more CoEL can do to support and we will send updated versions of this document as appropriate.
