Our Research and Evaluation Team

The Collaborative Trust Research and Evaluation team provides the research and evaluation operations of The Collaborative Trust.  The Trust calls on a talented pool of contractors, which comprises a variety of researchers and evaluators interested in youth health and development. 

The purposes of the contractors group are to:

  • Ensure a high standard of research/evaluation activity in youth health and development by providing ethical guidelines, supervision and peer support;
  • Implement the research strategy in youth health and development for the Collaborative Trust;
  • Provide opportunities for dissemination of results, and to involve youth and the community in research and evaluation.

As well as undertaking high quality research and evaluation the Collaborative Trust’s team of researchers and evaluators provides consultation, supervision and oversight of a number of community based and student based youth health and development projects. If you have any queries about any of our projects or how we might be able to help you with your project go to
