Get involved

As we move into our next phase of the research, we are looking to recruit young people aged between 16-25 in Scarborough as co-researchers. This will involve doing some training in research methods, helping to design research questions, and then conducting interviews with older generations within the community. Young people will be paid for their time. If this is something you might be interested in, please contact:

We are also looking to speak to adults in Scarborough (e.g. parents, carers, grandparents, aunts/uncles, close family friends) who have experience of supporting young people (up to age 25). If eligible, you will be interviewed by one of our young co-researchers, with the support of an experienced researcher, and will receive a £20 shopping voucher for taking part. Please get in touch:

If you are a local policy maker or practitioner in Scarborough or York and would be interested in being involved in one of our focus groups, then also please do get in touch:
