This article aims to contribute to debates about the current orthodoxy in relation to involving young people as participants in social research. This article will reflect on the increasing trend of including young people to greater degrees in social science research and questions whether ‘user involvement’ necessarily benefits the users or produces ‘better’ research. The dilemmas encountered in establishing and working with a Young People’s Advisory Group for a research project on young people’s experiences of violence in their intimate relationships are discussed in a way that illustrates the complexity of achieving benefits both for the young people and for the research.
