We are a friendly group of local people who have lived experience of equalities issues. We aim to learn from each other and challenge different forms of discrimination related to age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
MPEG is directed by a steering group of local people representing diverse local interests including different ages, physical and learning disabilities, mental health issues, different ethnic backgrounds and beliefs, and people from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities.
Together we aim to:
Promote equality and challenge prejudice
Build relationships across Midlothian’s 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; and have a voice in local policy and planning.
