What’s your Experience of Community Physical Participation?

27 September 2019

Karen Visser, a physiotherapist, PHD student and Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University is looking for help with her most recent study.

Hello. My name is Karen Visser. I am a physiotherapist, PhD student and Senior Lecturer at Cardiff University. You can find out more about me and my research here.

Currently, I am doing a PhD research study, exploring children and young people with neurological difficulties and their families experiences of physical activity participation within their communities.

I would like to find out:

  • What physical activities are available?
  • How and when do you take part?
  • What support and help (if any) do you need to take part
  • Do you think anything can be done to make community physical activity participation easier for children and young people who have neurological difficulties?

You may also have thoughts on opportunities that are not available, how they could be made available, and ways in which participation in physical activity could be facilitated.

I would value talking with children, young people, parents and families about their experiences and any thoughts they may have on these topics. If you would like to find out more about this research and/ or chat with me about these topics, please feel free to contact me by email at [email protected] or you can call me on 029206 87692 (24 hour answerphone).

Thank you very much for any help you can give.
