SFSC PhD studentship offered

The Race Equality Foundation is working with University of Sheffield to provide an exciting opportunity to a student wishing to pursue a PhD.

Giving voice to children in family-centred work: co-producing an evaluation framework for the Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities Programme 

Professor Sarah Salway (Sociological Studies), Dr Liz Such (School of Health & Related Research) and Jabeer Butt (Race Equality Foundation) invite applications for a collaborative PhD award funded through the ESRC White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership.

The research project will draw on theory and methods from social policy, social psychology and public health and be conducted in close collaboration with the Race Equality Foundation (REF)’s Strengthening Families Strengthening Communities programme. The aims are to (i) critically review evidence on participatory research and co-production initiatives with children and young people (CYP) (with a focus on family support and parenting); (ii) work with CYP to co-produce an evaluation framework that embeds CYP’s perspectives, (iii) pilot the framework within SFSC (iv) mobilise the knowledge generated within policy, practice and public stakeholder networks, to explore transferability. The project will require travel within the UK and some periods of time working at REF’s London-based office.

Information on how to apply is outlined in the document linked to the title of this study.

Deadline April 30th 2018.
