What Makes a Park Feel Safe or Unsafe? The views of women, girls and professionals in West Yorkshire

Anna Barker, George Holmes, Rizwana Alam, Lauren Cape-Davenhill, Sally Osei-Appiah & Sibylla Warrington Brown
When women and girls feel unsafe, they are less likely to use, enjoy and benefit from parks, particularly when alone and after dark. Parks and play spaces should be better designed and managed to be well-used, sociable places that offer activities and facilities that are welcoming to women and girls. Changes should support women and girls to feel safe throughout the day and all-year round. Changes to parks must be part of an holistic approach...

Supporting carers of people with a progressive neurological condition

Florien Boele, Emma Nicklin, Sarah Bronsdon, Ian Brooke Mawson, Peter Buckle, Sian Cartwright, Claire Hulme, Lisa McInerney, Yvonne Palmer, Robbie Foy, Juliet Jopson, Rory O'Connor, Amy Rebane & Judy Wright
Unpaid carers provide round the clock support to people living with a condition that affects the brain and gets worse over time (progressive neurological condition). Caregiving can be rewarding, but can also affect carer health and wellbeing. Carers consistently report many unmet support needs. We believe that carers, academics, service providers, and policymakers need to work together to improve support for carers and offer five pillars of action.

Reducing restrictive practices across health, education and criminal justice settings

John Baker, Kathryn Berzins & Sarah Kendal
In many institutions in the UK, when an adult or child is distressed or agitated, staff may use techniques such as physical restraint and/or being locked in a seclusion room to contain the situation. These ‘restrictive practices’ can be physically harmful and cause psychological trauma. We systematically reviewed interventions to reduce the use of restrictive practices in institutional settings and found the most effective interventions combined techniques from a common pool. Health, education and criminal...

Iyiola Solanke, florence ayisi, Claudia Bernard, Gargi Bhattacharyya, Anna Gupta, Raminder Kaur, Monica Lakhanpaul, Sabu Padmadas, Shirin Rai & Maria Stokes
Ignoring race, gender and class when tackling a pandemic can undermine not only wellbeing across Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic families and communities (BAME FC) but also their levels of trust in government. A framework to protect wellbeing and resilience in BAME FC during public health emergencies was developed by Co-POWeR to ensure that laws and guidance adopted are culturally competent.

UK Families Experiences of Film and TV during COVID and Beyond

Rafe Clayton, Carmen Lau Clayton & M Potter
Due to government restrictions, cinemas were closed in March 2020 and this rapidly accelerated the advancing trend of moving-image consumption taking place online (Gupta & Singharia 2021). Living under lockdown conditions and with the majority of British people [and many worldwide] having no option to watch movies other than within the home, the movie industry was unable to release its films through the normal theatrical channels (Sterritt 2020), leading to a significant pause in global...

Using geothermal mine water energy for food production in Leeds

Paola Sakai, Franca Hoffmann & Benjamin Carver
Using geothermal energy from unused coal mines for food production in vertical farms or glasshouses may increase food resilience in a low carbon way. An action plan to establish a pilot in Leeds was developed with stakeholders. There is an opportunity for Leeds to spearhead this approach for the UK and internationally.

Synoptic Forecasting Standard Operating Procedure for African SWIFT Testbed 3

Samantha Clarke & Samuel Owusu-Ansah
The following schedule was developed to match as closely as possible with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) currently used by the SWIFT partner countries operational forecasting centres (Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal). The SOP is for both East and West Africa forecasts however the times are different for each and so have been reflected in the timings given. East Africa shift timings are in blue and West Africa shift timings in red.

Supporting movement skills to improve health and education in the population

Nick Preston, Lucy Eddy, Liam Hill & Mark Mon-Williams
Six to 17% of children have a hidden physical disability (movement skill deficit) that impedes their progress in school (e.g., resulting in handwriting problems). The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened the situation, particularly in disadvantaged communities. Movement skill deficits decrease educational attainment and increase the risk of poor physical and mental health. We have developed free assessment and treatment tools that allow these conditions to be effectively tackled in schools, reducing the burden to the NHS,...

Fuel poverty in the cost of living crisis

Lucie Middlemiss, Aimee Ambrose, Neil Simcock, Mari Martiskainen & Graeme Sheriff
Access to energy is being severely restricted by the cost of living crisis, with almost a quarter of households experiencing fuel poverty, despite existing interventions. Here we draw on a large body of evidence on fuel poverty to summarise likely effects on households this winter. We find there is urgent need for further bill support, energy efficiency and targeted advice for vulnerable households.

Sasheeka Karunanayake
In this paper, I intend to share my experiences and reflections on the process of how the organisational elites, the gatekeepers and the participants of my study, were accessed and interviewed during the COVID-19 pandemic. The three-fold objectives of this paper are: negotiating access, the strategic approaches implemented by me as the researcher in accessing and conducting interviews, and sharing my lessons with novice researchers, who work in similar contexts. In the discussion, an emphasis...
