Midlothian Council section logoMidlothian Physical Disability Planning Group

What is this?

Midlothian Health and Social care partnership logoMidlothian – it covers the whole of Midlothian.

Physical Disability – People who consider themselves physically disabled including sensory impairments.

Planning Group – the Planning Group is made up of representatives from Midlothian Council, NHS Lothian, voluntary organisations representing disabled people and carers, organisations that provide services for them. They meet every 8 weeks and are responsible for producing an Action Plan and ensuring that the actions in it are delivered.

Midlothian Physical Disability Action Plan 2019 - 20120

This 1-year Action Plan aims to better the lives of disabled people and carers by improving the services they need to participate fully and equally in society. This plan was developed by disabled people, carers and service providers (those who provide the services that they use) by working together, sharing their knowledge, skills and expertise.

This Action Plan is based on the Rights of Independent Living

The 2019-2020 Action Plan from Midlothian Council is due to be launched in October 2019. When it does it will appear on Forward Mid’s website.

  • To work in partnership with Midlothian Financial Inclusion Network. (MFIN) This network helps to promote increased access to accurate advice services and target help to vulnerable groups. The network through its partnership working has been instrumental in securing external funding from the Big Lottery, Scottish Government and other funders to mitigate against the affects of Welfare Reform.
