Outreach and Public Engagement

We are working with the general public (you!) to set up the Kids’ Environment and Health Cohort. We want to ensure your views and the ideas of parents, children, and young people are incorporated as we develop the cohort. This includes ensuring that the Kids’ Environment and Health Cohort is used to answer questions that are important to children, young people, and parents.

To date we have met with a number of groups of parents, children and young people to discuss our work. In particular, we work very closely with the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Young People’s Advisory Group (YPAG) and the GOSH Parents’ and Carers’ Advisory Group, who have been involved from the start with this project. The GOSH YPAG helped us choose a name and gave us ideas for our logo!

We have also visited schools to talk about how data can be used to research the link between the environment and child health.

We co-developed the Kids’ Environment and Health public engagement strategy with the GOSH Young People’s Advisory Group and Parents’ and Carers’ Advisory Group, charity organisations, young people, and parents, and have incorporated their feedback into our communication materials. In the future we want to work with children, young people, and parents to develop research priorities for the Kids’ Environment and Health Cohort
