Experiences of Peer Evaluation of the Leicester Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Strategy
Fleming, Jennie; Chong, Hannah Goodman; Skinner, Alison
Children & Society, v23 n4 p279-290 Jul 2009
The Centre for Social Action was commissioned by the Leicester City Council to evaluate its Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Strategy. This was a multi-stage project with a central element of consulting with young people. This article outlines the process that was followed in order to recruit, train and support young people through the process of being peer researchers. Issues covered include retention of interested young people, experiences of training peer evaluators and supporting them throughout the project. The added value of using peer evaluators will be discussed and recommendations given for those wanting to work with young people as researchers in future.
