The CYCC Network knowledge synthesis reports bring together examples of best and promising practice for working with young people in challenging contexts. We’ve created summary documents, policy checklists, and videos to help you easily access the report findings and implement this knowledge into your own work.
The Knowledge Synthesis Process
These comprehensive reports are carefully researched in three different methodological stages:
These stages capture the three types of knowledge that the CYCC Network focusses on: Evidence-based practice, Practice-based evidence, and Local Knowledge.
Best practices emerge within the synthesis of these different types of knowledge.
The reports are written by research assistants and supervised by a steering committee of academics, service providers, students, and policy makers. The Youth Advisory Committee also provides insight and feedback throughout the development of these reports.
Finally, workshops with youth and service providers connected to the Network are used to review and refine the report recommendations.
