How to take part
All our work depends on parents being willing to help us by volunteering to participate, and we are very grateful to the families who help us in this way. If you think you might be interested in taking part in one of our studies, please look at the descriptions below for studies that are running at the moment. Please note that some studies require parents to live in specific locations, as we need to meet families to collect information, while others are online studies that anyone can participate in, wherever they live.
The following studies are either open or will be opening shortly. If you would like to take part, please see below or check again in a few weeks time:
Triple P and Diabetes
We are running studies to find out whether Triple P can help parents of children with diabetes. For more information and details on how to take part see:

Triple P and Asthma
The study is now recruiting families in Greater Manchester to test the value of Triple P seminars for parents of young children with asthma and to see whether this brief parenting intervention improves the quality of life of children and their families.
If you live in the Greater Manchester area and would like to find out more, please ring or text Ruth Heffernan on: +44 (0)7827 856837.
Baby Triple P
This is a doctoral research study trialling a new type of parenting support called 'Baby Triple P Positive Parenting Programme' to see if it is effective in reducing symptoms associated with postnatal depression and in improving the relationship between mums and their babies. The study is now recruiting first time mother's between 18 and 45 years old, with a baby under 12 months who live in Greater Manchester.
