We would like to invite families with children aged 5 - 14 years, who are living in Bradford to take part in this research study. Before you make up your mind about taking part in the research, it is important that you understand why the research is being completed and what you will need to do. If you would prefer to receive this information in another language, or have someone explain this information to you over the telephone, you can contact the lead researcher Dr Amanda Seims (contact details below).
What is the research about?
What does taking part involve?
- JU:MP (which stands for Join Us: Move, Play) is a programme funded by the National Lottery through Sport England and is led by Active Bradford, and aims to increase the physical activity levels of children, aged 5-14. You can find out more in this video.
- At the moment, the government has asked people to stay inside their homes and gardens as much as they can to stop the spread of the coronavirus. We are developing a programme called JU:MP@Home to help children and families to be physically active inside their home or garden - you should have received a JU:MP@Home activity calendar in the post and may have seen something online about this.
- By taking part your family will be part of the first programme of its kind, and your feedback will help us understand what we need to do to make JU:MP@Home better for you and other families in the area you live in.
Do I have to take part?
- Complete a questionnaire - this asks you about the activities your family do inside your home or garden, your children’s physical activity behaviours, how you are feeling during lockdown, and what makes it hard or easy for your children to do physical activity inside your home or garden. It will take around 15 minutes to complete.
- If you have seen JU:MP@Home, we will also invite you to complete the second part of the questionnaire. This asks what you think about JU:MP@Home, how you and your children may have been using it, and how you think we could make it better. It will take around 15 minutes to complete.
- At the end of each part of the questionnaire you will be offered the opportunity to be entered into a prize draw where you can win a Love 2 Shop voucher (there are 4 x £25 and 5 x £10 vouchers to be won). You will also be asked if you would like to tell us more about your answers in a focus group or telephone interview.
What happens to my information?
- You do not have to take part if you do not want to. Participation is entirely voluntary - it is your decision whether or not to take part.
- If you change your mind about taking part before you finish the questionnaire, you can close the website and your answers will be deleted.
Are there any risks involved if I take part?
- All data will be kept confidential and anonymised. This means that when data is analysed, your child or you, will not be identifiable. No information will be passed to any other organisation not directly involved in this study. Any identifiable information will be stored securely.
- The data will be analysed by researchers in the JU:MP team and the results will be presented in reports, published in research journals, and presented at research conferences. Anonymised data might be shared with University students to analyse and use for their University coursework (dissertations).
Who can I speak to if I have any questions before taking part?
- Ethics approval has been granted by the Chair of the Humanities, Social and Health Sciences Research Ethics Panel at the University of Bradford on 02/03/21.
- There are no foreseen risks of completing this questionnaire. If you are experiencing any conflict or emotional distress associated with taking part in the research, information and support services are available via MIND (https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/) and through your GP.
If you have any questions, you can contact the lead researcher Dr Amanda Seims by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone her on 07813 814474.
