New funding for SCPHRP's Jane Hartley

Congratulations to SCPHRP’s Jane Hartley who has won three funding bids for work in 2018.
The first two funds are from the Institute for Academic Development at Edinburgh University (IAD). The funds will be used to host a workshop series.
The first workshop will be held in March 2018: Relax, Relate and Create Workshop: A Launch Event for a Support Resource for Kinship Carers. This event will share the creative outputs from a project that developed a support resource for kinship carers (mainly grandmothers) of teenagers (their grandchildren). There are two creative outputs from the project. The first is a comic focused on an archetypal kinship carer and her grandson. It depicts her journey from being a highly-stressed carer of her grandson to someone who learns relaxation skills. Thereafter her relationship with her grandson improves, to their mutual betterment. The second output is an audio of those relaxation skills. There will be hardcopy and online versions. Read more about the comic project in SCPHRP’s Winter eMag page 14
The second follow-on workshop with be held in May 2018 Relax, Relate and Collaborate Workshop. The aim of this workshop is to develop an interdisciplinary network to inform future funding applications. This is a follow-up workshop to our Relax, Relate & Create Pop-Up Workshop that showcased creative output from our Kinship Care Support project. We would like to develop a similar support programme around the co-production of relationship-enhancing relaxation resources for other under-served populations. This workshop will allow us to discuss current thinking around the topic, identify research questions and strengthen potential collaborations across the University.
Jane, together with SCPHRP’s John McAteer also won funding from The Junction, an organisation that offers health and wellbeing services to the young people of North Edinburgh. The funding will evaluate the organisation.
