Children, Young People & Families
Our research spans health, social care and education, and focuses on services, outcomes and impacts on children, young people and families.
The research group works closely with colleagues in multi-professionals teams from the Royal Manchester Children's Hospital and national networks and includes child health nurses, social workers, learning disability specialists, doctors, midwives and public health nurses – working together on issues of regional, national and international importance.

Service user participation
The participation of children and young people in the services they use is essential if meaningful improvements to their lives are to be achieved. We believe that this principle extends to the participation of children and young people in all aspects of research.
