The Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth (CIRCY) is a new interdisciplinary research centre that brings together research, scholarship and expertise on childhood and youth. Launched in September 2012 at the University of Sussex, CIRCY has a growing membership that includes researchers from the social and life sciences, arts, humanities and professional fields including social work, law, education and health.
Our aim is to create a space for dialogue, collaboration, creativity and capacity-building and to support new research and knowledge exchange. We are committed to working with policy-makers, professional colleagues, young people and their carers in order to share expertise and ideas, exchange knowledge and promote good practice.
