The Centre

The Centre for Children and Young People’s Participation is concerned with promoting and researching participation, inclusion and empowerment.

The Centre is a forum for shared thinking. We promote seminars, workshops, conferences and publications and implement a planned programme of research. We focus on building links between academics, policy makers and practitioners as well as developing international links.

Children and young people are involved in every part of the process – managing the Centre, planning the research programme, and carrying out research. We hold regular meetings where adults and young people work together to plan the work of The Centre and design research projects.
