Welcome to the Public Protection website for East Lothian and Midlothian

Our vision is: “It’s everyone’s responsibility to support and protect people at risk of harm”

Our strategic approach includes:

  • adult support and protection
  • child protection
  • offender management
  • violence against women and girls; 

These being the most high profile critical services for which the key agencies of East Lothian and Midlothian Councils, NHS Scotland and Police Scotland have statutory responsibilities.

Our Committee includes key senior officers from the statutory and third sectors.  We work in partnership across East Lothian and Midlothian to deliver leadership, expertise and support to improve the safety of people at risk of harm in East Lothian and Midlothian.
