||Support fund launched for local people in need
Support is now available from Midlothian Council for local people who are in financial difficulty and struggling to buy food, fuel or other essentials.
The Midlothian Food and Key Essentials Fund has been launched to help support those facing severe financial hardship as a result of COVID-19 or other exceptional circumstances. It is available for local people of all ages (16 and over), living alone or within a family setting.
The fund works by distributing vouchers for food and other essentials. Local people can apply for vouchers for some local supermarkets. Support is also available to help cover emergency fuel costs.
The scheme will work alongside existing food providers in the area. Those applying for assistance will also be offered advice on money matters through a call back service, operated in partnership with Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) and Midlothian Financial Inclusion Network.
“There are many reasons why people find themselves suffering severe financial difficulties at the moment,” said Midlothian Council Leader, Councillor Derek Milligan. “This could be due to redundancy, a change in individual or family circumstances, domestic violence or other household emergency. The pandemic could have resulted in someone’s income being greatly reduced or them losing their job, which in turn has resulted in them having difficulty buying food, fuel and other basics items.
“We understand that many people may not have faced circumstances like this before and that they might be reluctant to ask for help,” added Councillor Milligan. “However, we would urge people to get in touch and can reassure them that their application will be treated in the strictest confidence, with support provided in a dignified and discreet manner.”
To find out more, and to apply for the vouchers online, go to www.midlothian.gov.uk/food-fund If you are unable to access the online system or need additional support to complete the form, contact the council’s dedicated helpline on 0131 270 8898. Essentials fund poster final 14.12.20

||The Health Protection Team have asked us to share the following key advice for parents and carers for managing Respiratory Illness this Winter:
In the home the risk of catching or spreading flu/cold like illness can be reduced by:
• Regular hand washing with liquid soap and running water
• Covering nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing
• Using a disposable paper tissue, disposed off immediately after use.
• You can teach your child to sneeze into the ‘crook’ of their arm rather than their hands, if they don’t have a tissue. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQINuSTP1jI
• Good general cleaning of surface that everyone touches often e.g. TV remote, light switches, door handles, toilet flushes and tap heads.
Children should not return to school until completely well and 48 hours after symptoms have passed
