Forward Midlothian - Winter Newsletter


Added at 14:01 on 05 January 2024

Winter Newsletter 2023 – a newsletter for Disabled People living in Midlothian. 

This newsletter is produced by Forward Mid as a supportive communication particularly for Disabled People and People with Long term Conditions living in Midlothian and professionals supporting Disabled People. This newsletter is full of information on what support is available for disabled people during winter – for many the most challenging season of the year. Inside you’ll find out about local organisations that can give you practical help – from saving money on your energy bills to keeping your home safe. There are tips on how you can look after you own physical and mental health as well as how you can help yourself and your neighbours with an extensive list of emergency contact numbers.

Perhaps the most challenging aspect of Winter is keeping in contact with people regularly and safely, feeling the warmth that a good conversation can have. Bad weather can put paid to physically meeting people but, inside Forward Mid’s Winter newsletter you’ll find options that can overcome this barrier. We wish you a healthy and safe winter. Be as active as you can be. Keep talking. Take advantage of the support that is available. Stay connected. Take care. Please distribute via useful networks and pass on as appropriate to individuals, friends, colleagues, neighbours, community groups and organisations who may benefit from this information. You can download a copy here:
