Empowering children and young people

Summary of the impact

Our work on children's agency in research has had three impacts:

  • the Children's Research Centre (CRC) created new opportunities for children and young people to engage in their own research and publish their reports online
  • their findings have impacted on policy and practice, for example on support for children with Graves' disease
  • participating in the research process has positively changed the way children and young people view themselves.

This approach has been replicated in Australia, Turkey, New Zealand, Norway and Qatar. The CRC website hosts 150 successful projects by children and young people, and through the Diana Award more than 1500 children were supported in their research on cyberbullying.
