The CCYP promotes the status of children and young people in research, policy and practice. It brings together four important strands: an interdisciplinary approach; a focus on research, education and advocacy for children and young people; an emphasis on cross-sectoral partnerships to promote evidence-based policy and practice; and the inclusion and participation of children and young people.

The work of the CCYP is facilitated by a team of committed academics working collaboratively with practitioners from a wide range of services to enhance the well being of children and young people in their families, schools and communities. This work is informed by the work of our young people’s consultative committee, Young People Big Voice (YPBV), and a distinguished Advisory Board.
