Abstract: This collection of papers have been specifically written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the National Children’s Bureau and to demonstrate children’s involvement in research, policy and practice. Chapter 2 discusses the ethical issues arising from the involvement of children and young people in research. Prior to a project starting there are ethical issues relating to involvement in bid-writing, gaining ethical approval, recruiting children as co-researchers or as participants, informed consent, payment and rewards, and training for co-researchers. During the research project, there are ethical issues relating to support for co-researchers and child protection and safeguarding. At the end of a project, the ethical issues relate to authorship and dissemination as well as planning for the end of co-researchers’ involvement.
