PROJECT: Want to shape the future of healthcare?

Want to shape the future of healthcare?


Scottish Government’s Technology Enabled Care (TEC) project have teamed up with Young Scot to look at how digital tech can support young people’s health and wellbeing.

Young Scot are now recruiting 20 young people to form a new volunteer Participation Panel to identify important issues for young people and work with the TEC project to come up with new ideas, innovations and recommendations for shaping and improving digital healthcare.

You’ll be building on the work done by previous Young Scot volunteers and working with experts across the health sector to look at how Scottish Government can use digital technology to address health and wellbeing issues today, and futureproof health care for generations to come.


What do you need to commit to?

The whole project will finish in September 2020 but we will give Panel members the option to rotate out every 6 months, so don’t worry about committing for the whole time.

If you live rurally or have to travel far to attend events, Young Scot can book you overnight accommodation to help manage your journey.

Applications are open to everyone aged 11-25 in Scotland, no experience required, and we particularly encourage applications from people who:

You can apply using the online form here, but we want to make this process as easy as possible so if you would prefer to apply in another way, just drop us an email, give us a ring, or message us on Facebook.


Once you’ve sent through your application, we will follow up with you to make sure this opportunity is right for you. The group will then be selected, making sure this is the best opportunity for each applicant.


What do you get out of it?

Loads of stuff!
