Community Planning

MVA is involved in community planning as part of the Third Sector Interface (TSI). More information about community planning can be found on the MTSI Partnerships section of this website. MVA participates in several Midlothian Community Planning Partnership groups, addressing themes including employability, economic regeneration, health, education and public protection.

Midlothian Third Sector Forum

MVA convenes a regular Third Sector Forum. This is a meeting of local third sector organisations to share important information, discuss issues affecting the sector and formulate a shared voice for the sector within the community planning process.

Midlothian Third Sector Children’s Services Network

This forum is for third sector organisations involved in the provision of services for children, young people and families in Midlothian. The network aims to maximise the contribution of Midlothian’s third sector toward the planning and delivery of children and families services. Meetings enable participants to share knowledge, skills and resources, as well as identifying areas for collaboration and partnership working.

Please contact MVA if you would like to join either of these forums.
