Undertaking Research and Evaluation on Issues and Policies Concerning Children and Young People
The Children's Research Centre, Trinity College Dublin, is a specialist centre, established in 1995 which undertakes multi-disciplinary policy and practice-relevant research into the lives of children and young people and the contexts in which they live their lives. The Centre is part of the School of Psychology and the School of Social Work and Social Policy. In its work the Centre strives to produce high quality research of interest to researchers, policy makers and service providers. The Centre has always had a strong focus on building capacity and skills in researching children's lives. It works closely with statutory, voluntary and community bodies concerned with children and young people. The Centre is also committed to forging strong links with Irish and international colleagues in the field of child and youth research.
