Service User (SU) involvement in the development of research and services is an integral part of current policy. This movement has led to a rise in Participatory Action Research (PAR) to empower SU voices and support social change alongside oppressed groups. PAR is an alternative approach to knowledge production which deconstructs power dynamics in researcher-participant relationships. PAR is aligned with liberation and community psychology, social justice and empowerment agendas. Despite the rise in PAR, research with Young People (YP) is lacking, and many PAR projects are constrained by pre-decided topics which can lead to tokenism. Evidence has demonstrated the effectiveness of PAR on the wellbeing and empowerment of YP, and that PAR increases the validity of research.
