The Volunteer Centre has rebranded as Volunteer Midlothian. We felt that this name better reflects the work that we are doing to develop volunteering in our local area. We are no longer just a 'centre' for people to find out about opportunities. In addition to our work with organisations and individuals we run a number of projects which provide good quality volunteering opportunities for people of all ages but which also contribute to Midlothian's Community Planning priorities by providing services to local residents.
