MPs want the Government to look again at the evidence and support the Scottish government to pilot different models of split payments within a clear timetable.

The #iwill campaign have commissioned research to understand what young people coming from lower socio-economic groups understand by social action and what motivates them either to engage or not to engage.

They would like to hold two focus groups here in the North East, one with young people aged 13 to 15 who are currently engaging in youth social action and another with young people aged 13 to 15 who are not currently engaging in youth social action.

Each focus group will last approximately an hour and they are looking for 6 -10 young people to take part.
