Our Research

Our research focuses around three themes:

  1. Physical activity and movement
  2. Self-care
  3. Friends & social

Across these, we especially have expertise in:

Children’s goals, beliefs, and bodies – and how these affect activity, self-care and friendships.

The role of the people around the child, particularly families but also the wider social environment, in children’s activity, self-care and friendships.

The supports provided by professionals; and health technologies.
