Abstract

Young Edinburgh Action (YEA) is an innovative approach to implementing the City of Edinburgh Council’s Young People’s Participation Strategy. It is informed by the views of young people and professionals, academic theory and the need for local government to evidence the work that they do and critically review their approaches. YEA developed a partnership with the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships to capture the unique qualities of the approach and to share learning.
