Items of previous interestNew East Lothian Service Gives Easy Access to Home Adaptations
A new service has been launched by East Lothian Council to give people quick and easy access to simple equipment and adaptations that will help people who, through age, illness or disability, are finding it more difficult to manage simple household or personal care tasks.
Residents will be able to select and order from a catalogue of simple items, all specially designed for the task. All of the items are available free of charge and without the need for a professional assessment. Relatives and carers can also request items on another person's behalf.
The equipment ranges from walking sticks and key turners to specially adapted cups and cutlery. There are also minor adaptations to provide balance and support inside or outside the home such as grab and handrails. All of the items have clear photographs and descriptions, including weights and measurements, and an order form in included within the catalogue.
Receiving equipment and minor adaptations couldn't be easier. Simply telephone East Lothian Council on 0845 603 1576 for a free copy of the self selection catalogue or download it from their website at HERECommunities Scotland Inspection Report 2006

Our Annual Report 2007-2008
was made available at this meeting and is now available to download.
At the meeting a Special Resolution was passed which significantly changed the Company's Memorandum & Articles to ensure stable, independent governance of the Company and substantially increased Tenant representation.
These changes meant important alterations to the composition of the Board of Directors and the Company is now looking to co-opt other suitably experienced individuals who have legal, financial, or other specialist expertise.
