03 APR Midlothian Advertiser PG 7 CROPBlackwood’s commitment to investing over £400,000 across Scotland has hit the headlines once again, this time in the Midlothian Advertiser.

Scotland’s leading housing and care specialists are investing money across Scotland to adapt the homes of people with disabilities and special needs.

£5,000 was invested in Midlothian, which will see 27 homes across the area updated to provide an increased quality of life to their tenants. The adaptations will include creating wet rooms, installing level access showers and fitting “rise and fall” kitchens, making it easier to complete day to day tasks.06 April Midlothian Advertiser Online
