University of York

I’m a researcher at the University of York and I live in the city with my partner. I really appreciated the reduction in traffic and pollution during lockdown, but I miss my family in London and Sweden, and the sea! I am leading the Covid Realities app, through which parents and carers can share their experiences. I hope that the project will provide an opportunity for families to share their experiences with each other and to tell policy makers what life is like for many people during this time.

Changing Realities is a collaboration between parents and carers, researchers at the University of York, and Child Poverty Action Group.
Changing Realities is funded by abrdn Financial Fairness Trust.
Changing Realities' sister project is Covid Realities, which ran from 2020 to 2022, and was funded by the Nuffield Foundation
