The InCLUDE Project: Making Research in Foster and Kinship Care Inclusive and Accessible

Speaker: Professor Nick Midgley

Clinical, Educational & Health Psychology University College London



If the findings of children’s social care research are to be meaningful and applicable in the real world, then participants in research should reflect the diversity of our cultures and conditions, taking into account race, ethnicity, gender, age, etc. The InCLUDE project (Increasing Collaboration and Learning with Underserved communities for Diversity and Equity) has aimed to put inclusivity and accessibility at the heart of research with foster and kinship carers, by understanding the barriers and facilitators to meaningful participation for those from underserved communities. This seminar will describe how the InCLUDE study worked to try and increase the number of participants in the Reflective Fostering Study from underserved communities, through a model of participatory action research in which the voices of those within underserved communities were sought.
