Midlothian projects which give advice to vulnerable people facing debt and welfare problems will benefit from a funding boost.

Melville Housing Association is to receive £92,631 from the Scottish Legal Aid Board to appoint a new welfare benefits adviser.

Association chief executive Andrew Noble said: “This grant from SLAB, allowing us to take on a second welfare benefits adviser, comes at a critical time and will make a real difference to some of our most vulnerable tenants.”

Other organisations to benefit from SLAB funding for Midlothian projects include Penicuik CAB, Shelter Scotland, The Action Group, Link Group, ARK Housing Association and Deaf Action.
