Research participation opportunity – Building resilience in the ‘forgotten heroes’: Improving informal support for women experiencing domestic abuse.

Dr Alison Gregory is a researcher at the University of Bristol who is running the ‘Building Resilience’ study which aims to develop support for friends, family members, neighbours and colleagues of women experiencing abuse from a partner or adult family member. Alison wants to speak to people who are in the position of trying to support a woman experiencing abuse (or who have been in this position in the past), in order to gather their views and opinions. Alison is interviewing people over the phone or online, and interviews take about 60 minutes. The findings from these interviews will help the development of a service, which will be piloted in a future study.

There is a small highstreet gift voucher as a ‘thank you’ for taking part. Alison is keen to include a wide range of people in this study to ensure that a variety of experiences and perspectives are captured. People currently under-represented in the research, include those aged 60+, people from ethnic minority groups, and people who have a colleague who has experienced abuse.
