What can the Scottish Parliament do to involve more people in its work?

What would help you get your voice heard in the Scottish Parliament?  The Parliament’s Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee wants to hear your views.

The Scottish Parliament is there to represent everyone in Scotland, but we know that some people are currently more likely to become involved in our work than others.

We want to speak to groups across Scotland to understand what would make it easier for people to work with us.  We are keen to listen to your experiences and ideas – so that you can help shape the way the Parliament works in future.

To begin with, we will be focusing on three main groups:

  • disabled people
  • people from minority ethnic groups
  • people on a low income.

Do you have thoughts, ideas or suggestions that you think could make a difference? Would you like to take part in a conversation to tell the Parliament what it can do to help people get involved? The Parliament is running sessions during May and June to find out what people think.
