The sections on this website are designed to be accessible to young people – and to offer information to professionals and family members or carers.

  • The ‘What we found out’ section has short ‘Headlines’, then brief statements of our main ideas. You can click through to the case studies or ‘Stories from our project’ or to detailed summaries of our findings and recommendations.
  • There are four videos in the Young people’s stories section where members of our Reference Group talk about their time in school and college. This section also has transcripts of what the young people said.
  • In the ‘Feeling good about yourself’ section, young people can find advice about taking care of the social and emotional aspects of their own lives. This section also has guidance for staff who wish to support young people’s emotional wellbeing through their teaching.
  • The ‘Make a difference’ section can be used to guide young people through the process of doing their own action research. As well as ‘Headlines’ and ‘Big ideas’, this section offers more detail about action research and provides links to additional material that will support particular phases of the action research cycle.
  • The ‘Useful resources’ section lists websites and other materials that will help young people to follow up some of the ideas from the ‘What about us?’ project. The section also lists resources that will be of use to professionals and family members or carers.
  • The full ‘What about us?’ report and the Need2Know briefing paper for policy makers are also available on the website.

You can always get to other sections of the website by using the menu – or by clicking on the ‘Check this out’ buttons.
