Children and Families
With commitments to help every child achieve their full potential, and aspirations to make Scotland the best place for children to grow up, children and young people are at the heart of policy and legislative decision-making in Scotland. Getting it Right for every Child and the Early Years Framework are a clear indication of the Scottish Government’s ambitions to enhance the life chances of Scotland’s children and young people.
Our research on children and young people cuts across numerous policy areas, including education, health and wellbeing, parenting and childcare, deprivation, crime, and equality. As a result, we have utilised various data collection methods to gather, analyse and report upon a great deal of data from various audiences. Our recent research in the children and young people sector includes:
Through projects such as these we have gained a great deal of knowledge about the policy area, and about what works in research with children and young people. This enables us to conduct research which is sensitive to the variety of factors influencing the lives of children, young people and their families, and to provide our clients with results that are robust and reliable in informing the development of policy and strategy.
Teachers’ and Young People’s Omnibus Surveys 2012
We’ll be running our Teachers’ and Young People’s Omnibus surveys this autumn. These surveys are the only Omnibus studies of their type in Scotland. With administration costs shared between all clients who buy space in the surveys, these surveys represent a cost-effective way of reaching these audiences.
