The information needs of young first time mothers from areas of multiple deprivations

Dataset

Description

This project was a major ESRC funded study that sought to better understand the information needs of young first time mothers from areas of multiple deprivations, their information behaviours, and the factors influencing their information behaviours. 

Our overarching theoretical framework brought together theories of human information behaviour with theories of social capital to explore shared concepts of social integration, understood as participation, access, and engagement. Extensive fieldwork included observation and interviews with young mothers, and health and social care professionals providing support to young mothers.
