The Children, Young People and Flooding project builds on earlier work led by the Lancaster University team with two research projects: the Flood, Vulnerability and Urban Resilience: a real-time study of local recovery following the floods of June 2007 in Hull and Children, Flood and Urban Resilience: Understanding children and young people’s experience and agency in the flood recovery process (2009-2011). These two projects generated a resource called Flood Snakes and Ladders, a training tool for front-line workers that provides an insight into the long-term recovery process that follows a disaster.
Our project collaborator Save the Children has a leaflet giving advice to families, carers and teachers who are concerned about the impact of emergencies on children’s well-being. You can find it here.
There are also many other projects and resources about children, young people and flooding. Find some of those here.
