Project Seeding Grant
Lay summary
This seeding grant will cover some of the costs associated with the initial consultation required to design this research project on the unmet health needs of tamariki and rangatahi in care. This consultation will ensure that the proposed research meets the needs of the various stakeholders, but also complies with the various ethical, legal and privacy requirements involved in interviewing rangatahi and accessing health information on youth in a custodial environment. This will require the researchers to meet with key stakeholders including service providers, policy-makers, children's advocates and the residential care centres.
