Supporting people with physical disabilities

If you or one of your family are affected by a physical disability, we will work with you to agree how we can best give appropriate support.

We will help you access a range of services so you can live as independently as possible. We will assess your needs and establish what options are best for you.

Joint Physical Disability Planning Group

The JPDPG is a group of disabled people and carer reps, professionals, voluntary organisations and Third Sector partners. They meet every 8 weeks to plan improvements to services for those affected by physical disability in Midlothian.

If you would like to get involved in any way, please contact Jayne Lewis on 0131 271 3665 or jayne.lewis@midlothian.gov.uk.
