In this chapter we discuss the legislative and policy context for children and young people’s participation in the United Kingdom (UK), and how this relates to the evidence base for their involvement in research. We then examine a specific project, developed by the NCB ( National Children’s), Research Centre called ‘PEAR (Public health, Education, Awareness, Research): our voices, our health, which supported young people to contribute to public health research. We consider the lessons from this project for the involvement of children and young people (CYP) in research and policy, with contributions from three young people who are members of PEAR.
