Young People as Co-Researchers: Benefits and Challenges

Young Edinburgh Action, City of Edinburgh Council

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract


This workshop showcases a partnership between the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (based at Edinburgh University) and Young Edinburgh Action (City of Edinburgh Council’s young people’s participation strategy, involving action research groups). With co-production and participatory methods much discussed within the research literature, the workshop provides an opportunity to explore critically the benefits and challenges of young people working with adults as co-researchers. Young people emphasise the importance for professionals to understand issues from young people’s perspectives, that the research process is led by young people and that real change results.
