Children’s advisory groups

Children’s advisory groups

Children’s advisory groups, also called young people’s advisory groups, committees or councils, are a form of participatory research. The groups typically comprise a group of interested children or young people, often with various backgrounds and abilities. Some advisory groups are project or topic-specific, often involving children or young people who have relevant experience or interests. Other groups support research across a wide range of topics. The role of different groups vary from being a consultative forum, advising researchers on different aspects of the research, such as methodological issues, to having a more collaborative role in shaping the research, such as setting research priorities, developing and designing research tools, recruiting or knowledge translation.
