MYPAS – SMART Family and Friends meetings

Starting on Thursday 28th September at 10.15am-11.15am or 6.15pm-7.15pm.

SMART F&F meetings support Family and Friends of young people living in East Lothian and Midlothian who use substances, to establish healthier relationships. The programme supports those affected by a young person’s substance use to concentrate on themselves and learn new ways of dealing with the challenges, thoughts, and emotions that they experience.  The meetings focus on positive communication, disabling and enabling, and trust and self-care. More information about SMART F&F can be found at

Take part in the Midlothian Carers Survey!

The Midlothian Carers Survey is currently open, and VOCAL and their partners are looking to receive more responses than ever before.

The survey is for unpaid carers and it is  an opportunity to have your say and help influence how services are delivered locally. Whether it’s about taking a break from caring, care packages for the person you care for or services that have helped you, we want to listen to your thoughts and ideas.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete and you can enter a prize draw too with a holiday or £50 voucher to be won! You can save your answers and come back to them, and you don’t need to answer every question. We’ll ask you about your current or former caring role, taking a break from caring, money, work, health, and wellbeing. The survey will close on Thursday 31 August.
