The Midlothian Youth Platform

Our Aims:

  • Offer young people in Midlothian a collective youth voice
  • Make a difference in society by increasing young people's participation
  • Promote a positive image of young people
  • Connect with the processes of policy making and development with young people
  • Be an independent and youth-led organisation free from influence; and where young people can give their views to policy makers without hindrance, fear or barriers

We are a registered Scottish Charity led by young people aged 12-21. We meet twice a month and are always looking to welcome new members to our group.
