Children & Young People's Wellbeing @ Exeter Research Network
We bring together researchers across the University who conduct research in the area of children’s health and wellbeing.
The network spans many of the University’s colleges and represents 16 different groups, all with related work in this important field of enquiry. It was formed to ensure that strong collaboration and interdisciplinary thinking and skills are at the heart of the research conducted, for the benefit of children and young people.

Research Groups and Key Researchers
Children’s Clinical Research within Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital
NIHR PenARC works with practitioners, patients, carers and members of the public to conduct research that answers pressing questions for practice in the NHS and Social Care. They are a collaboration between the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, and health and social care organisations across the South West.
Key researchers and support staff
The EASE working group brings together academics and postgraduate research students from diverse disciplinary backgrounds across the University of Exeter (including anthropology, philosophy, sociology, geography, bioscience, psychology, animal behaviour and computer science) whose research and teaching interests explore and address human interactions with other living things.
The EASE team has just been awarded a grant from the Society for Companion Animal Studies for a project exploring how best to support children following the death of a companion animal. The primary purpose of this research is to explore the experiences of individuals regarding childhood loss of a companion or support animal and to consider if there are measures which might benefit children in similar situations in the future.
