Cycle wise with UCLAN research team
Jul, 28 2021
We all want what’s best for our children and as they grow older they may wish to become more independent. This need might start with how they travel to and from school daily.
At UCLAN trained researchers are seeking children and young people from Preston to participate in a study exploring the safety of cycling to school.
The researchers believe cycling improves your overall health and well being, but there may be barriers that are preventing school - aged children from this activity.
The team are keen to hear ideas from residents on how to encourage children to cycle to school and back safely. The research project has been approved by the UCLAN ethics committee and will involve the completion of an anonymous survey.
Residents are required to contact children and young people they know or work with to complete the survey and assure them that an adult or guardian will help them with their answers.
The survey is completely confidential and only the research team will have access to the participants’ answers. This will enable UCLAN to understand what helps children cycle to school and what prevents them.
The researchers work with the following people:-
This is put in force to provide ways of meeting to talk about issues concerning communities.
