    CYPAR logo 2014

Children and Young People As Researchers (CYPAR) Network is an initiative led by NCB NI and supported by a steering group of representatives from ARK, VOYPIC, PlayBoard, Barnardo's and YouthAction. The purpose of the network is to create an information and support mechanism for practitioners and researchers.

CYPAR aims to

  • Promote the value of involving children and young people as researchers to other researchers, research users and research funders. 
  • Promote good practice in involving children and young people in research practice and delivery. 
  • Encourage evaluation of the processes and impact of children and young people's involvement and incorporate learning from this into methods of involvement. 
  • Provide support to organisations and researchers who want to involve children and young people as researchers.
