Building on the earlier example, a review aimed at supporting the development of school-based interventions to promote children’s health could benefit from input from the following: •• Children and young people themselves, who hold insights into their own social worlds, including the likely acceptability of different intervention approaches to them and their peers, and ways of communicating about the issues involved.

Many research commissioners require research teams to involve service users and the wider public (Staley and Hanley 2008), and the participation of stakeholders is seen as an indicator of quality for the development of guidelines for practice (Brouwers et al. 2010). These approaches, where a range of stakeholders play an active role in decisionmaking for policy, and in the research that can inform policy, are summed up in the phrase ‘participatory research and policy’. g. Bannister et al. 2011; Gough 2007a; Irwin 2001).

Bannister et al. 2011; Gough 2007a; Irwin 2001). They are also informed by instrumental arguments, which assert that inclusive approaches lead to more relevant and valid research, and findings that are more readily used (Entwistle et al. 1998). Research to drive change, taking into account the perspectives of disadvantaged groups, has also been described as ‘transformativeemancipatory’ research (Mertens 2003) (there is more of this in Chapter 4).
