PDI Action Research

Outline:

 

icecream architecture are working with a team of young people affected by recovery in their life, to design a tool to allow practitioners to gather their stories and make them accessible for impacting policy, funding and service provision by exploring what support matters to them.

 

Client: Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland

Duration: 8 Months

Understanding the Needs of Children and Young People in Parental Recovery

 

Lloyds TSB Foundation for Scotland’s programme with additional investment and support from the Scottish Government and the Robertson Trust will deliver a 12 month action led research and literature review project.  The project will be run by the Partnership Drugs Initiative (PDI) in partnership with Evaluation Support Scotland and icecream architecture.  We will produce a report and a resource to help improve understanding of the needs of children and young people whose own parents / guardians are in recovery.  The project emerged as a result of consultations from a number of key stakeholders and feedback from PDI funded projects

 

We are working with a team of young people affected by recovery in their life, to design a tool to allow practitioners to gather their stories and make them accessible for impacting policy, funding and service provision by exploring what support matters to them.

 

To kick start we initially have an informal chat with young people, as a small group to discuss what would encourage involvement in the project.  Then together over the next 6 months, we will run creative design events and active projects to test their ideas and make them come to life.

 

Instead of us telling young people, we encourage them them to:

Shape the project and make it interesting

Give their thoughts on what support is important

Design the tools that support workers could use
