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 reports on implementation progress through the Early Years Subgroup of the Community Planning Partnership.

You can download the document from this page, along with other resources that have been produced to support the strategy actions.

One of the actions in the play strategy is to provide information on funding opportunities for play services and provision.

We’d like to direct you to the following sources of information and support on funding:
