Generation R - Young people improving research

  Created on Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015. Posted in Public Involvement | Young People

Generation R is a National Young Persons’ Advisory Group funded by the NIHR that supports the design and delivery of paediatric research in the UK.

YPAG now consists of five regional groups based in Liverpool, Birmingham, London, Bristol and Nottingham, plus one topic-focused group looking at Mental Health based in London.

They are all made up of 10-15 members who are aged between 8-19. The groups meet every six weeks either at weekends, in the evenings, or during school holidays and come together for a national meeting once a year. Their views feed into the design and delivery of research in children.
