Volunteers wanted for Eye-Tracking study at UWE Frenchay Campus

CAR researchers are looking for people in the Bristol area to take part in an eye-tracking study, investigating how people process Instagram posts.

Participants will be required to complete one short survey online (approx. 10 minutes) and attend a 30-minute session at a laboratory at UWE Frenchay Campus in Bristol. Participants will receive a coffee voucher to thank you for your time.

Take part or email Ella.Guest@uwe.ac.uk if you have any questions about the study.

Calling parents and carers of children with visible differences

Are you a parent or carer of a child or young person with a visible difference?

We are conducting interviews to explore the experience of caring for a child with a visible difference and parents’ experiences of support. This research aims to inform the development of future support for parents and carers.

All parents and carers who participate in an interview will receive a £15 Amazon voucher as a thank you for taking part. If you would like more information about this research please submit your contact details or email Maia Thornton at maia.thornton@uwe.ac.uk.

Invitation to try online support for people with visible differences

CAR are looking for volunteers to test a new online programme that helps people view themselves more positively.

The online programme is designed for adults with conditions that affect how they look, and encourages people to focus on what their bodies can do, rather than how they look. As a thank you for taking part, participants will be entered into a £150 prize draw.

If you would like to take part, or want to find out more, please email Ella Guest at ella.guest@uwe.ac.uk or phone 0117 32 87045.
