About Young Scot Youth Loneliness Panel 

#YSHive is looking for around 15 young people to volunteer on the Young Scot Youth Loneliness Panel. This Panel will be a diverse group from across Scotland age 11-24, who have a keen interest or are passionate about tackling Youth Loneliness in Scotland.

The Panel will collaborate with Scottish Government, Local Authorities and Third Sector Partners to support implementation of the Panels recommendations whether this be online or engaging in existing local services. The Panel will also develop and create online content that is created by young people for young people to help combat Youth Loneliness in an effective way. This content will be hosted on the new Loneliness Landing page.
