Health Inequalities: Peer Research into the role of communities

by:

What did we do

We worked with 15 young peer researchers in two areas of high deprivation to explore how the areas that they grow up in affect health and wellbeing and contribute to health inequalities.
The young peer researchers designed their research project, collected data and analysed their findings. We then published a final report detailing their work with a series of recommendations for local and national decision makers.

Changing Gears

What did we do

In 2020 Children in Scotland was asked by Cycling Scotland to explore children and young people’s views and perceptions of cycling and road safety. The project, called Changing Gears, offered 300 children and young people the chance to share their thoughts and experiences and shape future decisions about cycling across Scotland.

LEAP Cluj

by:

What did we do

We delivered a comprehensive, multi- and inter-disciplinary assessment of the needs and opportunities for young people in the Cluj metropolitan area, guided by an ecosystem view and oriented towards future initiatives stemming from the results of the assessment. The project will deliver an evidence-informed, tech-enabled repository of data, actors and initiatives in the areas of health and well-being, and education and future of work in the Cluj metropolitan area, with a participatory and inclusive approach. Different aspects of the research and the formulation of policy proposals were provided through participatory mechanisms involving young people and stakeholders, too. Data and proposals are put at the base of future action in the Cluj Metro Area during a 10-year lifespan.
