Being Together

Project: Non-funded project

Project Details


A partnership between Dr M Macaskill (taught element), young people with complex needs, BA1 HASS students and local authority ASN schools. The BA1 students will be briefed on key aspects of complex needs prior to undertaking the placement, relating to health and wellbeing, communication and engagement. Students will be supported by school and university staff, as well as peers. The aim of ‘Being Together’ is to begin to take steps towards both raising understanding of the voices of young people with CASN through building relationships, and also to take steps towards an equal sense of belonging on all levels of society- including higher education. Additionally, the ethos of the project assumes an equal partnership between young person and student from the start. The only skill needed is in a positive attitude to diversity and a willingness to build relationships through interacting with young people. Students and young people will work together to create a shared, enjoyable activity.


This is not a research project, but a pilot placement opportunity for BA1 HASS students. It is hoped that it will spawn future research opportunities.
