I am a MSc (Conversion) psychology student from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), carrying out some research as part of my final project. The study seeks to explore farmers’ emotional wellbeing and resilience amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Ethical approval has been granted by the University Ethics Board, and the project will be overseen by my project supervisor, Dr. Cath Sullivan. The relevant contact details have been enclosed at the bottom of the Participant Information Sheet attached.
I am looking for approximately six participants in total (men and women) to partake in a one-hour interview drawing on their own experiences of the Covid-19 pandemic. All participants must be over the age of 18, and must have worked on a farm for at least two years prior to the 23rd March 2020 (National Lockdown Announced). The aim of this project is to gain an in-depth and person-centred insight into some of the unique challenges faced by agricultural workers amid Covid-19.
