At Home with Children: Learning from Lockdown

At Home with Children: Learning from Lockdown

11 May 2021

The "At Home with Children: Learning from Lockdown" research project is led by Professor Rosie Parnell (Newcastle University), Dr Sandra Costa Santos (University of Dundee) and Dr Alkistis Pitsikali (Newcastle University). The project is looking for participants to take part in their survey to help understand what constitutes ‘liveable’ domestic space for families with children under pandemic conditions.  

As part of this exploration, the study will also examine the role of domestic space in alleviating and/or exacerbating the psychological and social impacts of COVID-19 on children and young people, as experienced by families. 

The project will explore what lessons can be learned from our lockdown experiences and how they can inform the ways we re-imagine our homes. 

  • To what extent has your home supported, or hindered the various needs of your family?
  • Have you made changes to the ways you use your home, or to the spaces themselves, since the pandemic began?

The project is looking for people in England or Scotland, who have spent at least one COVID-19 lockdown period in their primary dwelling, living with children. We want to explore your experiences of your home in the periods when nurseries and schools have been closed.
