This report tells the story and process of wave two of the #ScotYouthandCOVID2 project. This was a Virtual Participatory Action Research Project with 25 Young Consultants across Scotland. Participatory Action Research is an approach that involves researchers and participants working together to understand a situation and/or problem and change it for the better. The findings detailed here explore the experiences and ideas for change from children and young people precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the UK moved into and through a second national lockdown at the start of 2021. Understanding these experiences and insights is vital to ensure we collectively respect, protect and fulfil children’s rights during and beyond the current crisis.
