Community Planning in Midlothian

Midlothian will work towards reducing poverty

We will, as a partnership, work to reduce all aspects of poverty using a data informed approach whilst learning from those with direct experience of poverty. 

The number of local people finding themselves under financial pressure has increased due to the cost of living crisis. Supporting individuals and families to increase income, reduce outgoings and ensure they receive all income supports has become even more vital.

Organisations and groups who will support this group's work include:

  • Midlothian Council
  • Federation of Community Councils
  • Midlothian Sure Start
  • Skills Development Scotland
  • Faith Partnerships 
  • Melville Housing 
  • NHS Lothian
  • HSCP
  • Changeworks
  • Volunteer Midlothian
  • Edinburgh College 
  • Capital Credit Union
  • Newbattle Abbey College
  • Citizens Advice
  • DWP
