This is a short overview of the key issues on involving children and young people in NHS, public health and social care research. These have been developed by INVOLVE in response to requests from researchers for practical information on what they need to consider when involving children and young people in research.
The purpose of this document is to highlight:
The information was developed by reviewing existing information and guidance on involving children and young people in research. It is not intended as a comprehensive handbook or manual. The top tips were developed by selecting those that focused on the practicalities and asking children and people involved in research to identify which ones they thought were most important and if anything was missing.
