A NEW initiative to help families deal with difficult circumstances has been launched in Midlothian.

The Empowering Families Project has been set up by Midlothian Sure Start and partner organisations after gaining financial support through the BIG Lottery Fund’s Improving Futures programme.

The project recognises that some families experience poor health, unemployment, debt or housing problems, all of which can affect their children’s wellbeing and life chances.
