It situates this work within an empowerment and rights framework and charts its journey, from the first pilot work to recognition as a centre with significant international reach. The impact of child-led research, in terms of contribution to the body of knowledge on childhoods and our understanding of children's lived experiences, are examined along with a discussion of how child-led reserach can be influential in policy and practice contexts.
