This Directory is produced by Forward Mid as a one stop source of accurate, supportive, empowering  particularly for Disabled People across Midlothian and the carers and professionals who support them.

 

From the intro;

There is an old adage that says ‘Information is power.’ This is certainly true for disabled people. Without correct, relevant and up to date information disabled people can become isolated, unable to exercise their rights, receive the support they need and make their own choices on how they want to live.

The purpose of this directory is to help disabled people, their families or carers find practical, useful information which could improve their lives immeasurably. To get the answers to the same questions I had 20 years ago as well as solutions to the everyday problems which still seem part of the territory for disabled people. Still, there is another saying ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger’. This directory has a host of invaluable information and contacts that are an essential companion for all disabled people and carers in Midlothian whether they be newly disabled or long-term disabled. I would have preferred a Forward Mid Directory then and settled for being a wee bit less strong.

The Directory (160 pages), is produced with an ethos of providing clear, up to date, useful information, tips and contact information for Disabled citizens, and as a very practical and  useful resource, encouraging people to think about what might help or support them to improve their quality of life.
