Apply research to use different engagement methods to reach the whole of society, including non-digital and digital approaches Raise awareness that the Scottish Parliament will provide payment which addresses the cost barriers that people face when coming to the Parliament and taking part in engagement activities, such as travel expenses, lost income from time off work, childcare and additional costs related to accessibility requirements. Ensure access for people with English as a second language including promoting and improving use of Happy to Translate.
