What are Citizens' Panels?

Citizens' Panels are a way for people to give their opinion on services in their local area and influence decision makers. By listening to your views, we aim to provide the best services we can to meet your local needs and priorities. Over the years we have asked the panel about health and lifestyle, the environment, education and training, transportation, community safety, the economic downturn and our corporate plan.

Who is on the panel?

The panel is made up of around 3,000 people from North Lanarkshire. Our Citizens' Panel reflects the North Lanarkshire adult population in terms of age, gender and geographical location.

What do panel members do?

We conduct online surveys and focus groups when asked by services and organisations. There may also be opportunities to express your views in local discussion groups. Your participation will be entirely voluntary and your views will be used anonymously.

How do I join?

We're looking for residents who are passionate about North Lanarkshire and keen to share their views so if you'd like the opportunity to influence the future of services in your area then join our Citizens' Panel.
