Co-Creating Welfare (CCW) Current Projects

The project is funded by Erasmus+, the EU’s programme for education, training, youth and sport, and involves partners in Denmark, France and Portugal. As this is all about co-creation, we have practiced what we preach and have been talking to people working in welfare from the beginning and will continue to gather feedback along the way. We hope that with our help, welfare organisations across Europe will start putting these methods into action. Everyone should be involved together as a team from the beginning and all the way through.

LIFT: A community-centered intervention to improve infant feeding practices among Pakistani and Bangladeshi families living in the UK Current Projects

Health and Life Sciences

Earlier research revealed that Pakistani and Bangladeshi communities living in the UK may be more vulnerable to lower breastfeeding rates than previously thought. We also found that infant feeding behaviours are influenced by cultural beliefs and practices, so that improving infant feeding outcomes requires culturally sensitive research.  With support from our collaborators, we have built trust with the local communities and are working with them to create resources to influence infant feeding practices and improve infant and maternal health


ifeed: User-centred development of an online and mobile phone intervention to support infant feeding choice and confidence to sustain breastfeeding and/or safe formula feeding Current Projects

Health and Life Sciences
