West Midlands metropolitan county England UK black map with white

We are researching on behalf of our client and looking at public views and perceptions around violence against women and girls in the West Midlands. We are interested in talking to all members of the public (especially men) who are open to expressing their views and perceptions about violence against women and girls.

Each in-depth interview will last circa 45mins, or 90mins for a focus group, allowing you to talk about your views about this subject.

We are looking to hear from anyone who identifies as a member of the black community living in the Britain, as part of a pilot project. You must be over 18 years old from the West Midlands to participate. We are researching how regional organisations can work alongside the general public and grassroots charities to better understand the issues faced, with the long-term plan to improve how they communicate with people from all backgrounds, to ensure that an intervention is sensitively co-developed with all members of the West Midlands community.

The in-depth interviews and focus groups will be held online on Microsoft teams. You will participate in an open conversation with one of our friendly moderators. As a thank you, we are paying £60 for taking part, which will be transferred into your nominated bank or PayPal account on completion.

The in-depth interviews will take place between the 17th – 28th July 2023. The focus groups will take place between the 17th – 28st July 2023. We are interested in speaking to an array of people from all walks of life. (If you’ve never been fortunate to participate in traditional or online Focus Groups or In-Depth Interviews before, then we suggest you read this brief introduction).
