This document is intended as a resource on youth participation research for practitioners and researchers wanting to involve young people more in their research. It contains two parts, one with a table on containing International Youth Participatory Research Resources, and the second with a table on Examples of Youth Participatory Health Research in the UK in the last 20 years. It is hoped this resource will support both an increase in the volume and quality of youth participatory health research.

Young people in the UK, defined as being 1024 years old, face a range of major health issues, such as chronic pain, cancer, diabetes and mental health issues (AYPH, 2019), many of which have been further exacerbated by Covid19. People working on behalf of young people require research to help better understand the issues young people face in order to improve their health. A particularly successful, and ethical, approach to conducting this research is to involve young people in the design, delivery and dissemination of research, and not just include them as study subjects.
