Midlothian Play Strategy

On 6th December 2016, Midlothian launched its first play strategy. Midlothian Council and Play Midlothian led on the development of this document, with the involvement of a cross-sector and cross-departmental working group.

Midlothian has 19,664 children and young people (aged birth to 18). The Play Strategy aims to help make it a reality that Midlothian equals a great place for them to play.

Parents and a wide range of professionals across the public, voluntary and business sectors have a role in ensuring children have access to play, while the planning process involves partners spanning those contexts. The strategy encompasses all places children might play in Midlothian.

A steering group will report on implementation progress through the GIRFEC theme of the Community Planning Partnership.
