You will be asked to participate in a Focus Group as part of the Speak Up! event series. This will last approximately 2 hour. 

We are interested in exploring your views and experiences on this topic.  

Benefits and Risks

There is no immediate benefit to you but it is hoped that the results of this work will inform future practices, legislation and policy in relation to measures that are being adopted to promote community cohesion, address antisocial behaviour and poverty. There is a risk that you may share some personal or confidential information by chance, or that you may feel uncomfortable talking about some of the topics. However, we do not wish for this to happen. You do not have to answer any question or take part in the focus group or interview if you feel the question(s) are too personal or if talking about them makes you uncomfortable.)  You will not be provided any incentive to take part in the research. However, we don’t want you to be out of pocket as a result of your participation and will provide a small amount for your time, and travel expense (if applicable).   

Terms for withdrawal

You have a right to withdraw without prejudice and without providing a reason.  

Confidentiality

All the information that we collect about you during the course of the research will be kept strictly confidential. You will not be able to be identified or identifiable in any reports or publications. Everything you say will be treated as confidential, unless the researcher is worried that there is a risk of harm to you or another young person, in which case they will inform the appropriate authority.
