Here at CRC, our primary objective is to empower children and young people as active researchers. We recognise that children are experts on their own lives and we value their perspectives and knowledge. The CRC promotes children and young people's voice by training and supporting them to investigate issues they identify as important to them. We offer diverse groups of children and young people a taught programme on all aspects of the research process followed by support to design and carry out an original research study. Since our launch in 2004 we have worked with several hundred children through links with schools, youth organisations and charities nationally and internationally. An important part of our mission is to contribute to the body of knowledge on childhood and children's lived experiences. Helping children and young people to disseminate their research is integral to that goal. There are over 150 research outputs by children and young people featured on this site.
