About MPEG

We are a friendly group of  local people who have experience of and aim to learn about and challenge different forms of discrimination related to age, disability, gender, sexuality, ethnicity and socio-economic background.

MPEG is directed by a steering group of local people representing diverse local interests including disabled people, young people, older people, people from ethnic minorities and people from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities.

Together We Aim To:

  • Promote equality and challenge prejudice;
  • Build relationships across Midlothian communities of interest where people feel valued and trusted;
  • Provide a platform for Midlothian people to:
    • learn, educate, and communicate about local equality issues of concern and interest;
