For 13 years, Jenny’s main role has been to develop and implement a strategy for involving children, young people, parents and carers in all aspects of health research to ensure the inclusion of a lay perspective in the design and delivery of paediatric research.
Jenny set up and currently co-ordinates GenerationR.
GenerationR consists of many Young People’s Advisory Groups (YPAGs), based around the UK. The YPAGs meet regularly to learn about clinical and other health related research and discuss how to make it work better for young people.
GenerationR has enabled hundreds of young people to have a voice in research design and delivery both nationally and internationally.
GenerationR is funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
