RESEARCH TO EXPLORE THE IMPACT OF EXPERIENCING OR WITNESSING VIOLENCE ON BOYS' BELIEFS AND BEHAVIOURS IN NOTTINGHAM AND NOTTINGHAMSHIRE
The Nottingham and Nottinghamshire VRU are inviting quotations from research partners who are have the requisite skills and experience in conducting primary research involving children. The research will explore the impact of experiencing or witnessing violence on boys’ beliefs and behaviours in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire, in particular:
how witnessing or experiencing domestic violence as a child affects beliefs such as masculinity and the use of violence
how experiencing domestic violence as a child affects behaviours both as a boy and subsequently as an adult in relation to violence against women and girls (to include both inter-partner and other violence)
factors that provide greater resilience for boys and young men
Research has shown some association between boys experiencing domestic violence and becoming a perpetrator of violence in later life, though many boys will not follow this trajectory. Increased understanding is sought as to what factors influence the outcomes for boys and young men
The VRU’s detailed requirements are defined in the Specification. The Specification provides potential providers with the relevant information to enable them to produce a proposal and quotation to deliver the work.
Up to £10,000 of funding is available.
