Children Growing Up in Liverpool (C-GULL) Consultation for Young People

Event Date: 05 March 2021

Hosted by University of Liverpool | Friday 5 March 2021 | 4-5.30 pm

The Department of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool is looking for young people to shape how a new birth cohort in Liverpool will engage with young people.

Children Growing Up in Liverpool is a flagship birth cohort, that will trace the lives of over 10,000 Liverpool City Region residents and their families helping us understand more about what influences their health and wellbeing. The information collected will help shape future population health outcomes for years to come.

The team at Liverpool University want to engage with young people so they can shape the Children Growing Up in Liverpool study to focus on what is important to them. This is a really big research programme which is focused on understanding what helps and what harms the health and well-being of children in the Liverpool City Region. They want to make sure this research is as beneficial as possible.

They want to hear young people’s ideas on the best ways to get children and young people interested in, and engaged with, the Children Growing Up in Liverpool study.

The team have organised an online workshop for people aged 14-18 years. It will be held on Friday 5th March, 4-5.30 pm. Participants will be reimbursed for their time.

They’ll be asking young people for their thoughts and ideas around this research. For example: what should we be focusing on, and how we can best involve the young people of Merseyside with the research and its findings?

If you know of young people aged 14-18 years and might be interested in taking part in this workshop, please contact Dr Rebecca Geary for more details on
