"Our Opinions Matter": Parents and Children in the Canal Communities

Research funded by: Canal Communities Partnership

Through community based participatory research, this project seeks to develop a model of good practice for accessing the views of parents and children on matters affecting them through engagement with parents and children in the Canal Communities Area.  Project research methods represent a shift from the traditional research hierarchies and relationships to more collaborative research processes involving the community and aims to encourage co-learning and capacity building among the research partners and participants. Resulting from the project the CCP will have high quality information from parents and children on their views around issues affecting them. 

Research Team: Dr. Noirin Hayes, Dr. Helen McQuillan and Jonathan Ilan.
