8. Other issues
8 In this consultation paper, we are seeking views on a wide range of issues and this section poses some more general questions. But we do not want to constrain the discussion. If there are other areas you would like to raise, we look forward to hearing about them.
Question 15: We know that young people are less likely to stay in or move to the South of Scotland than they are other parts of the country. Do you have any comments on things the Agency could do to meet the interests of children and young people?

South of Scotland, how can the Agency:
- promote equality for people who share one or more protected characteristic as defined by the Equality Act 2010  ;

- foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not?
Question 17: Do you have any other comments on how the Agency might address specific needs?
