Carers earn ski trip

Midlothian foster carers have been given free skiing lessons as a special ‘thank you’ for all their hard work.

Midlothian Council organised a trip to Midlothian Snowsports Centre and the visit was also used to encourage more people to become foster carers at the start of Foster Care Fortnight.

There is an ongoing need for more single people, couples and families to foster and offer a home to children in Midlothian who are in crisis.
