Aged 16-20 in West Pilton and want to talk to a researcher?

Interviewees wanted

Are you aged 16- 20?

Do you live in West Pilton?

Can you spend 45 minutes to tell me what it’s like growing up and living here?

£10 will be paid for your time.

I want to interview young people, aged 16-20, to find out about their experiences of becoming adult in Pilton. The interviews will take around 30-45 minutes.

The interviews will be totally confidential and no personal details, including your names, will be shared with anyone outside the interviews.

All interviews will be held on the premises of Edinburgh’s Telford College, Granton Campus or Pilton Youth and Children’s Project. A fee of £10 will be paid to each volunteer once the interview has been conducted.

If you are willing to take part, please email me on or call me on 0750 5081784.

Thank you!
