Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing

The Wolfson Research Institute for Health and Wellbeing, established in 2001, conducts and facilitates interdisciplinary research on health and wellbeing across all three University Faculties. We support a community of over 140 Fellows, 14 Research Centres and 7 Special Interest Groups across almost all of the University's departments and schools.

Vision

"The Beginning, Middle and End"

  • Understanding a problem.
  • Understanding how it manifests itself in the individual and in the community.
  • Understanding ways in which we can mediate the problem effecting change via evidenced interventions.

Strategy

The first way we do this by identifying themes across Durham University in an interdisciplinary fashion, encouraging dialogue and interaction in discussion, evidence gathering, evaluation and interpretation.

The second way is to target a societal question or problem and collate and gather Durham University research expertise to address the issue from an interdisciplinary approach.

Durham Covid-19 Study - Get Involved

(29 April 2020)

A team of researchers at the Department of Sociology, Durham University, are currently conducting a study to learn about how families (in the broad sense) in the UK have been coping with the lockdown due to the spread of COVID-19. We really hope you can help us by completing this online survey! https://durhamsociology.fra1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3Fd1wmwtStHkhG5 

Hi, we are a team of researchers at the Department of Sociology, Durham University, currently conducting a study to learn about how families (in the broad sense) in the UK have been coping with the lockdown due to the spread of COVID-19. We really hope you can help us by completing this online survey!

Your responses will be of great value for understanding how the government regulations on physical isolation and social distancing have affected people’s lives. We hope the findings of the research will help health professionals and policy makers support families in the future.

We have tried to make this questionnaire as short as possible. A small sample of people have completed it, and it took them 10 to 15 minutes.

We will not be able to identify who has responded and no information about any individual participant will be revealed.

If you have any questions about the study, please contact the research team at covid19.familylifesurvey@durham.ac.uk.

If you have any other questions, you can contact the Chair of the Department of Sociology Research Ethics Committee at sociology.research@durham.ac.uk.

Take the survey now - https://durhamsociology.fra1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3Fd1wmwtStHkhG5
