About Us

This research forum is an extension of the work of the Eric Frank Trust.  It aims to create an online 'hub' for research-related material on youth leadership, education, personal development and youth organisations, in particular scouting.  The site is organised into thematic sections and we welcome further contributions.  Please contact Dr Sarah Mills with any relevant links to online material or publications.

The site is offered by the EFT as a service to the wider online community and those interested in youth and education.  It is run on a not-for-profit basis, carrying no advertising or sponsorship.  The EFT Research Forum is not responsible for external content nor does it officially endorse the views of authors included on the site.

The Eric Frank Trust

The Eric Frank Trust has been established to promote young people's personal development, including leadership development, especially through World Scouting.  Learn more about the Eric Frank Trust and its work, projects and grant opportunities here
