Over the past three years, we have aimed to:

  • Create an evidence base for peer research - A base of evidence on peer research is needed, drawing from domestic and international examples, to make the case to the sector on the value of adopting peer led research as part of their youth voice.

  • Support youth sector organisations to conduct peer research – This work seeks to build the skills and capacity of groups to develop peer-led research within their organisations.

  • Chair the London Peer Research Network - Meeting quarterly, the peer research network brings organisations together to share practice and upcoming work in the sector. 

 

Over the past three years, we have supported twelve organisations conduct peer research projects with young peoples, including:

 

In the past two years we have also released two reports about peer research, that can be found below:

 

  • Involving Young Londoners: A review of participatory research in the youth sector -We spoke to organisations about how they were conducting peer research, and the challenges that they face.

  • Involving Young Londoners: A toolkit for peer research - As part of our learning over these projects, we have collaborated with the Greater London Authority to release 'Involving Young Londoners: A toolkit'.
