Our Community Team is based at our head office in the West End of Edinburgh and is managed by Kathy, with support from Mhari.  The team runs answers around 200 enquiries every year via telephone or email from families. With such a high volume of telephone calls you may find that the phone is answered by Barbara, AnneMel, or Sophie.

The Community Team can provide information and support on a wide range of subjects including:

The staff have a wealth of knowledge for you to tap into and every response is tailored to your individual circumstances.  If we don’t know the answer, we will find out who to ask.

The Community Team can also offer a block of 5 free counselling sessions to parents whose children are the The Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, on either an inpatient, or outpatient basis.
