New website launches to help Midlothian youngsters get housing advice

A NEW website has been set up to help young people access information on housing in Midlothian.

Midlothian Council has introduced the Facebook page in response to an increasing enquiries coming from people aged 25 and under.

Councillor Owen Thompson, cabinet member with responsibility for housing, said: “With major welfare reforms imminent which will dramatically affect young people’s housing prospects it is vital that they have a free and accessible way to contact the council’s housing department.”
