We are interested in connecting with international researchers who have looked at the wider effects of Covid-19 as part of our ongoing study – British families in Lockdown’, to broaden current knowledge and understanding around the pandemic and its impact on children and parents.  We hope to apply for research funding with potential collaborators, such as Research the social sciences in the Open Research Area (ORA): round 7 – UKRI (countries listed for this particular funding call are Germany, France, Canada and Japan), and seek to work in partnership in other ways which would be mutually beneficial, such as sharing findings, creating joint publications, knowledge exchange and policy engagement activities etc.  

British Families in Lockdown/BFiL’ has spoken to families across each of the three UK lockdowns with regards to family dynamics, family relationships, children’s education, parental employment, health and well-being, social connectedness, technology use, and adherence to government restrictions.  Sixty parents from diverse backgrounds spoke to us in the first lockdown and parents have participated in a follow up online survey and second interview since.  

We have published several evidence papers that have been published by UK Parliament, contributed towards various reports by international and national organisations, and received media interest in our study (such as BBC News, The Guardian, The Observer, etc). Full details on our focus of inquiries, key findings and publications to date can be found here. 

We now hope to incorporate an international dimension to our study and future activities and warmly welcome individual researchers and research teams from any country to get in touch. If you would like to find out more, have any questions and/or would like to collaborate with us, please email Bfil@leedstrinity.ac.uk. Thank you for reading. 

Dans le cadre de l’étude en cours, British Families in Lockdown – Les familles britanniques et le confinement – nous souhaitons travailler avec des chercheurs dont les travaux portent sur les effets de la pandémie de Covid-19 pour élargir nos connaissances ainsi que notre compréhension des incidences de la pandémie sur les enfants et leurs parents. Nous espérons solliciter des financements de recherche auprès de collaborateurs comme Research the Social Sciences in the Open Research Area: Round 7 – UKRI. Les pays concernés par cet appel sont l’Allemagne, la France, le Canada et le Japon. Ce travail en partenariat est envisagé sous la forme de partage des résultats, de création de publications, d’échange de connaissances et de tentatives d’influence de politiques.

 

Dans le cadre de l’étude British Families in Lockdown/BFil lors des trois confinements, des discussions avec des familles ont été menées au sujet des relations familiales, de l’entourage, de la scolarité des enfants, du travail des parents, de la santé, de l’utilisation des technologies et de l’observation des restrictions imposées par le gouvernement, par exemple.

Lors du premier confinement, soixante parents de milieux variés ont participé à l’étude et depuis ils ont répondu à une enquête de suivi en ligne et à un deuxième entretien.

Plusieurs de nos travaux ont été publiés, notamment par le Parlement britannique ; nous avons également  contribué à divers rapports d’organisations nationales et internationales et avons retenu l’attention de médias tels que BBC News, The Guardian, The Observer. Pour consulter les détails de l’enquête, des principaux résultats et des publications à ce jour :  British families in Lockdown’.

Notre objectif est dorénavant de donner une dimension internationale à notre étude et nos activités futures. Nos remercions chaleureusement les chercheurs et les équipes de nous contacter. Pour de plus amples informations, si vous avez des questions et/ou si vous souhaitez faire partie du projet, contactez-nous à Bfil@leedstrinity.ac.uk.
