Research and evaluation
Research is at the heart of everything that happens at JU:MP. Local, regional and national insight has informed the Implementation Plan and continues to shape individual elements of the programme, telling us where we should carry on and when we should stop.
A team of researchers at Born in Bradford work alongside the implementation team. Currently the team are working on:
- Evaluation of JU:MP@Home - Find out more from Amanda Seims, Senior Research Fellow
- Recruiting to a children's advisory group - Find out more from Amanda Seims, Senior Research Fellow
