The initiative brought together academic researchers from the Centre
for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of
Edinburgh and practitioners and policy-influencers from Barnardo’s Scotland
and Children in Scotland in a knowledge exchange partnership, based on a
process of action learning. It ran from April 2011 until September 2012.
It was funded through the Economic and Social Research Council’s Follow on Fund. It used research findings and practice experience in assisting organisations to support children and young people’s participation in policy-making. It did this by exploring sustainable ways of working with invited members of Scotland’s Children Sector Forum run by Children in Scotland. This Forum mobilises an united voice amongchildren’s sector organisations to influence national policy and local practice, in ways that advance the best
interests of children and their families.
