Bridget Shaffrey is a researcher from Durham University who has been exploring solidarity and community movements in Berwick-upon-Tweed over the past year. For the second phase of her research, she is hoping to recruit more participants who would be willing to answer questions about changes in the Berwick community, the effects of the 'cost of living' crisis, and examples of community care.
If you are a Berwick resident, a former Berwick resident, or someone actively involved in a Berwick community group, she would love to speak with you! Notably, your insights will be used to develop policy recommendations for health and care infrastructure in rural areas and coastal towns.
If interested or if you have further questions, please contact Bridget at [email protected].
