Work with us

As part of achieving our vision that young people are meaningfully included in Scotland’s decision making, we undertake a wide range of commissioned projects, which our members play a key role in the development of.

As part of achieving our vision that young people are meaningfully included in Scotland’s decision making, we undertake a wide range of commissioned engagement and participation work, which our members play a key role in the development of.

Commissioned work includes:

  • Focus groups; A small but diverse selection of our members come together to share their opinions on a topic or issue.  Focus groups can be semi-structured or structured around a set of questions and is a good way of gathering qualitative data from young people.
  • Workshops; This method allows in depth discussion and analysis of a particular outcome. For example, a strategy or action plan where an organisation wishes to take young people’s views into account. 
  • Discussion days; A discussion day is an engaging and participative way to hear young people’s views on a particular issue or topic.
  • Research; We sometimes carry out research on specific issues so that we can fully understand and represent young people’s views. Our research has influenced national Action Plans and strategic direction on many policy developments.  

This regularly updated section provides you with a snapshot of our current and completed projects, and their ongoing impact on the lives of Scotland’s young people.

Commissioning our engagement and participation work gives our partners the opportunity to understand what a broad cross section of young people think about key policy issues, in a meaningful and cost-effective way.
