This document is part of a collection

Summary and Next Steps

We know that there are a lot of people from different backgrounds and with different experiences who are on the Experience Panels. But there are some people who are less well represented – including ethnic minorities and young people. We are working to make sure we hear from these people too.

We will work hard to try to hold events in different places around Scotland so that is easier for people to come to events in their area. We will do a "tour" of different locations at least once per year.

We will continue to offer different ways to take part and invite you to let us know if there are things we can do to make it easier for you.

We are currently looking at all of the information that you gave us through surveys, interviews and focus groups during the summer of 2018. We will let you know the results of this in the next few months and how the information is being used. We are also looking at the best way to keep you up to date with what is happening around social security in Scotland.
