Lothians Veterans’ Centre was officially opened on November 15th 2014 by Col. Martin Gibson, Chief Executive of Veterans’ Scotland.
The charity was originally founded in July 2009 as The Mark Wright Project and was first located at Hardengreen Industrial Estate, Midlothian. The charity was designed to meet the need for a veterans drop-in centre with no appointment necessary allowing complex needs to be catered for in an environment which is familiar and friendly.
The LVC aims first and foremost, to create a welcoming & friendly environment, providing person-centred support for ex-service personnel and their families across Edinburgh and the Lothians,
The continuous reassessments of our service delivery, highlighted a desire for a location more accessible to the veterans’ community, subsequently moving to the centre of Dalkeith in March 2013. This move has clearly proved popular as the numbers of Veterans’ just “dropping in” for a chat has increased significantly.
Our Partnership Working has increased ten-folds as a result of relocating. Key agencies including; Dalkeith Job Centre, Midlothian Council (Housing Department & Welfare Rights Team), Dalkeith Citizens Advice Bureau all recognise the importance of the LVC to ex-service personnel and can easily signpost without any lengthy referral processes and all within a stones throwing distance of our centre.
