Our Citizens' Panel is made up of local people who have agreed to be consulted on a wide range of topics.
Members take part in surveys two to three times a year. These can be by post, online, or by phone.
We sometimes hold local/focus discussion groups so that we can speak to people in-depth about certain issues. We will only contact you if you have agreed to take part in this type of consultation.
If you are under 25 years old, you can get 150 Young Scot reward points if you sign up online.
Application forms are also available from your local library.
Individuals will not be identified in any survey findings or reports.
There is no payment for participation in the panel, but you will be reimbursed for costs if you attend focus groups or forums.
Panel members will be kept up-to-date with regular contact from our community engagement team and will have access to reports as they are published.
