Research title: An exploration of the experiences of grandfathers whose grandchildren are involved with Children’s Services
I am a student at the University of East Anglia undertaking a research project on the role of the grandfather. In particular I am interested in the experiences of grandfathers who have grandchildren involved with Children’s Services. The aim of the research is to explore grandfather’s perspectives of their experiences and to understand more about the way grandfather’s view involvement and support from others. This may be helpful for both family members and practitioners when determining what sort of support could be provided for grandfathers in this situation.
I would like to interview men whose grandchildren are or have been part of Children’s Services. I would really appreciate the help of any grandfathers who fit this description. The interview will take about an hour and be conducted at a time and place convenient to you. If you would like more information or know of any other grandfathers who may be interested, please get in touch.
Participation in the research is voluntary and interviewees would be free to withdraw at any point. All information given will be treated as confidential and anonymised.
If you are willing to be interviewed please ring or email to discuss the project and arrange a convenient time and place to meet.
