It is recognised that quality research can provide valuable insights that may ultimately help Children and Youth Services (CYS) in the provision of services and support that contribute to ensuring children, young people and their families are safe, nurtured and well.

If you or your organisation wishes to conduct research with CYS, you will need to follow the attached guidelines which have been designed to provide guidance for researchers to ensure the research project meets CYS requirements.
