MIS Remote & Rural Scotland Research - Campbeltown

The project aims to help create a better understanding of the needs and costs experienced by people who live in rural and remote areas of Scotland. This research initiative is called Minimum Income Standard for Remote and Rural Scotland and updates similar work which was commissioned in 2012 by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and partner organisations.
The project has now begun recruiting, in Campbeltown and surrounding villages, for participants from a variety of backgrounds and age groups. The research will be conducted by the Centre for Research is Social Policy (CRSP) team at the University of Loughborough working alongside the Project Lead and another Highland based researcher.

The research will be carried out using three local focus groups which will involve a small number of people taking part in an informal discussion led by a professional researcher. Normally these focus groups would be carried out at a local venue however due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing restrictions the groups will take place online using Zoom, with support provided for those who are unfamiliar with using the technology.

All participants will receive a £50 voucher (from Tesco, Co-op or Amazon) if they attend a focus group.
