Postcode Films have recently been commissioned by an independent research agency called Hopkins Van Mil, who are helping to conduct a year long review that will be used to inform a multi-disciplinary National Food Strategy, the first of its kind in 75 years. The review, which will make recommendations to the government. Postcode Films have been commissioned to record audio interviews with people who may be less likely to be able to have their say in this way, for a variety of reasons from mobility to work schedules. We want to include as many voices as possible, because the findings from this research will in time affect people of all kinds across England, and no one group should be disenfranchised for reasons of access. Kate from Postcode lottery is looking into coming to Bristol and hosting interviews (audio recorded and anonymous) to be used as data and in the workshops to inform discussions. The participants would be paid £40 for their time.
In particular at the moment they are hoping to reach people that might fit any of the following descriptions, in case this helps (they don’t have to fit all of these descriptions):
- People with mobility issues
- People with food related health issues (for example diabetes type 2)
- Elderly people
