Public Participation in the Parliament

The Scottish Parliament’s Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee is looking to hear from grass-roots community groups and individuals from across Scotland.

The Scottish Parliament is there to represent everyone in Scotland, but the Committee members know that some people are currently more likely to become involved in the Parliament’s work than others.

The Committee wants to speak to people from across Scotland to understand what would make it easier for people to work with us. They 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, they will be focusing on three main groups:

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

However, they are very happy to hear from anyone who feels that they would like to have more of a say.

Do you have thoughts, ideas or suggestions that you think could make a difference? If so, please complete this multiple-choice survey by 22nd July 2022. The survey is anonymous and will take around 10 minutes to complete. The survey is currently available in English, Gaelic and BSL (British Sign Language). Translations of the survey in Polish, Urdu and Punjabi are also being produced and the Committee is happy to translate into any other languages on request.
