This report details the findings of research into the Conversations process. The Conversations process involves individualised and one-to-one engagement (a
conversation) between children and young people in the Greater Shankill community and a qualified and trained adult ‘Pathfinder’. The goal of this process is to encourage and support the child to consider, from their own perspectives, their current and potential future lives, or to put it simply, to help them discover ‘the story they want their life to be’. The Conversations process aims to encourage transformational change, using a childcentred and bottom-up process to establish children’s goals, aspirations, challenges and pathways for support.
