Homelessness

If you are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, contact Midlothian Council's Homelessness Unit:

Assessing your situation

If you present yourself as homeless, we will assess your situation. If you:

  • have nowhere to stay, you will be given emergency accommodation at once and a homeless interview the same day, or the next working day if it is after office hours.
  • are homeless but have somewhere to stay temporarily, you will be offered a homeless interview within 10 working days.
