What is this project about?

The Law and Justice Foundation would like to hear the stories of people who have been impacted by a natural disaster. The aim of this project is to better understand how people are able to get help following a disaster and any challenges they may face.

We will be using a range of approaches to learn more about the impact.


You will be eligible to take part in this project if you:

If you are interested in taking part, we will soon provide the opportunity to take part in a one-hour interview with a member of our research team. This interview would be conducted via videoconference (Microsoft Teams) or phone call.

In the interview, we will ask you more about your experiences, including getting help with problems caused or made worse by natural disasters. There are no ‘correct answers’; we are interested in your story and the thoughts you have about your own experience.

Please note that the interview will be recorded, so that the interviewer can focus on talking to you. The recording will not be shared beyond this research project.

In the research report, if a quote or information you have supplied is used, we will change or remove your name or other identifiers.
