Midlothian Financial Inclusion Network (MFIN)

The purpose of MFIN, which has over 20 participating organisations, is to help relieve poverty and promote public awareness around matters relating to the management of personal finances. Both MVA and Volunteer Midlothian are members of MFIN. Find more about the network by getting in touch.


MFIN, in partnership with Dalkeith CAB, has been looking at how we can improve the quality of information that local statutory and third sector organisations have about common issues. Please see below a list of leaflets that aims to give individuals the information that they need to resolve some of the most common enquiries that the CAB receives.
