Melville Housing Association has donated £1,000 to Midlothian youth project Y2K to help with the invaluable work they do supporting young people in one of Midlothian’s most disadvantaged areas.

Y2K launched in June 2000 after the old church manse on Bogwood Road in Mayfield was donated to the community. It provides drop-in sessions, attracting about 120 people a week, that are open to young people between the ages of 11 and 18 from the surrounding area. Staff pride themselves on providing a safe and supportive environment that is often lacking at home or elsewhere, allowing young people to socialise, get help and support, and try new activities.
