COVID-19 UPDATE...

Following the Government guidelines we will continue to provide this service remotely throughout the current lockdown.

We continue to support young carers remotely via phone calls and video calls whilst restrictions are in place.

We will not be able to run any groups in person but will run some of our groups via Zoom.

If you would like to make a referral to our services, please email duty@mcfb.org.uk and we will get back to you as soon as we can (within 2-3 days). Please note that waiting lists are in operation for many of our services, but we will endeavour to offer support where possible or make an onward referral where appropriate.

The Yolo Sistas provides group work support for BME teenage girls who have caring responsibilities in their lives.

The Yolo Sistas group meets every Monday afternoon after school and provides support for BME teenage girls who have caring responsibilities. The group provides an opportunity for the girls to discuss issues affecting their lives, try out new activities and build their support networks.

The group takes place at our office base in Leith. The group provides opportunities for arts and crafts and cooking activities along with lively discussions around a whole host of topics. The group has spaces for up to 10 girls and transport can be provided to enable the girls to access the group.

Please email or phone 0131 467 7052 for more information.
