UCLan researchers are seeking children and young people from Preston to take part in a study exploring the safety of cycling to school.


The researchers said cycling has many health and environmental benefits, but there are barriers that the university would like to explore further with school-aged children.

The team would like to hear ideas from residents on how to encourage children to cycle to school and back safely. The research project has been approved by the UCLan ethics committee and will involve the completion of an anonymous survey.

Residents are asked to contact children and young people they know or work with to complete the survey and advise them that they can ask an adult or guardian to assist them with their answers.

The survey is confidential, and only the research team will have access to the participants’ answers, which will help UCLan understand what helps children cycle to school and what prevents them.

The researchers work with children, their families and workers to provide ways of meeting to talk about issues concerning communities.
