The NIHR Generation R Alliance as well as members of the European Young Person’s Advisory Group Network (eYPAGnet) and Young Person’s Advisory Groups (YPAGs) have produced an online toolkit.
Setting up and organising a YPAG can be challenging and time-consuming. Ultimately, it is rewarding and often fun as no meeting or group is ever the same! It is a huge learning experience for everyone involved.
The toolkit is designed to take you through each part of the process of setting up a YPAG, and is split into four sections recommended by our users: understanding why it is important; getting started; delivering a meeting; evaluating the work, and the impact a YPAG can have on both the participants themselves and on child health research.
