Covid-19: How to get help.

If you find yourself needing help at this time because you are unable to go out or because Covid-19 has caused your personal circumstances to change, then there are two ways of making contact to get help.

Firstly, there is a website set up by Cllr. Stephen Curran which covers every Community Council area in Midlothian. It is Follow the link for Dalkeith & District and there is an online form to use to request help, which then gets sent to us. Alternatively follow the link here to go straight to the page for Dalkeith. This site is available 24/7.

Secondly, you can contact the Midlothian Council Covid-19 support team as follows. By phone: dial. 0131 270 7500 (between 8am and 6pm, weekdays only)

By email:

Any of these will take you to Midlothian Council’s central co-ordinating team who will direct you to the most appropriate source of help.
