This research project explores the psychosocial wellbeing and personal welfare of women workers in organisations offering services, support and advocacy to women and girls who may be socially isolated, economically marginalised and disadvantaged. The study is undertaken at this point in time to capture how the COVID-19 pandemic may be exacerbating pre-existing challenges upon the professional and personal lives of the workers, and the efficacy of the services that they provide.

The research is funded by the Nuffield Foundation and is a collaboration between a team from the University of Glasgow, the University of Cambridge and the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth.
