Coronavirus (Covid-19) - support for Midlothian Council’s Carers (posted 14 May)

At what is such an unsure and uncertain time, we would like to say we are extremely proud of all our carers.

Our thanks go to every one of you as you continue to provide a high standard of care and support to many children in fostering, kinship and adoptive families.

Midlothian Council is keen to ensure you continue to receive the supports you need to keep your families well and support our children to navigate and grow during this challenging time.

The Family Placement Team continues to work and we are committed to maintaining our contact with you via telephone and virtual supervision.

If you need anything further please be reassured we are here and you can call us on 0131 271 3413 where someone is always available. In addition we will continue to get news out to you via email and our newsletter. Stay Safe.
