MidAid

MidAid – Midlothian Aid – is a partnership between local churches, schools, Midlothian Council, and local charity Edinburgh Direct Aid, to support relief and aid work in refugee camps.  If you would like to volunteer to help with MidAid then please contact Alan Naylor on 01968673222 or at lowriesedge@sky.com.

Details about where and when you can drop off donations, together with an up to date list of requested items can be found on the Midlothian Council Website.


There is currently no City of Sanctuary group in Midlothian. If you would be interested in forming a group please let us know to see if we can help.


Interfaith Groups

The nearest interfaith groups are Edinburgh Inter Faith Association and Edinburgh Women’s Interfaith Group.  Both organisations arrange regular events and meetings to which all are welcome.
