Knowledge is never produced alone but always in collaboration or cooperation and our work on social studies of flooding has been possible through the support of a network of organisations and individuals willing to share their experience and expertise with us.
In research terms this starts with the children and young people, families and school staff who have given us their time and helped us understand things from a perspective which was previously almost overlooked. It also includes the adults who wrote diaries to express the day-to-day struggles and pressures surrounding the complex recovery process. These kinds of partners will always have to remain anonymous but we are also able to thank the organisations that we’ve worked with:
- British Damage Management Association
- Dukes Youth Theatre, Lancaster
- Environment Agency, Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Research and Development Programme
- HD Research
- Hull City Council
- Surrey County Council
- Two Ridings Community Foundation
