Research Opportunity: Your Experiences with Health and Social Care During the Pandemic

March 29, 2022

Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (ALLIANCE) has commissioned a research project looking at children and young people’s access to support during the pandemic.

The Study

Do you live in Scotland and are you between 10 – 18 years? Do you live with a long-term health condition, sensory loss, mobility difficulty or experience any disability? Would you like to talk about your thoughts and experiences of whether and how COVID 19 has changed your care routines, school, diets/food, access to healthcare, and other supports you need?

If so, get in touch! ALLIANCE would like you to join their research study!

Taking part could help make positive changes to how children and young people, and their families, access social care and support in Scotland. ALLIANCE hopes that the research will provide evidence to help improve policy and practice. Understanding children’s and young people’s views and experiences are important so that policymakers can properly address their needs and requirements.

Who is eligible to participate?

  • This research is designed for children and young people aged 10 to 18 (including, but not limited to, those living with sensory loss, mobility requirements, multiple complex health conditions, or visual facial differences)
  • You live in any region of Scotland


  • You will be asked to participate in three remote (online) interviews lasting between 20 to 40 minutes each.
  • The interviews will be adapted to participants’ communication needs, for example, by using text conversations, audio stories, podcasts, or photo stories.
  • All interviews will be completely confidential and anonymised.

If you have any questions about the project or are interested in taking part, please email Dr. Liliana Arias–Urueña at [email protected].
