Evaluation and research papers

The CHANGE project has engaged with a number of local families and community partners since the project began in 2016. The project team gathered and presented this information alongside colleagues from Glasgow Centre for Population Health (GCPH) who were the research partner for the first three years of the CHANGE project.

A selection of evaluation and research papers are accessible on the GCPH website. These include the year one and year three evaluation reports, a summary of childcare and profile of circumstances in the CHANGE area, as well as research findings on the cost of childcare.

All of these papers can be accessed here.

Covid-19: Implications for Families in the CHANGE area

Since the lock-down restrictions were put in place in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, the CHANGE team have kept in regular contact with community partners in the project area to offer support. The team have also continued to facilitate CHANGE Hub meetings, offering partners the opportunity to stay in touch and access an established support network. Many of our partners have continued to deliver services which have had to be adapted due to the changing circumstances. Our communications with these services has given us an insight into some of the implications and concerns for local families, as well as the opportunity to reflect on what has been set up in response. We have collated this learning and summarised it here.
