Survey researches barriers to countryside access

06 April 2022


If you live in the Great Yarmouth area and have a chronic health condition, or care for someone with a chronic health condition, you’re being invited to complete a survey being run by a student at the University of East Anglia.

Matilda Jones is studying for a degree in BA Geography with the School of Environmental Science at the University of East Anglia, and is researching under-representation in the countryside in collaboration with Pathmakers, a charity that is helping people get out into the Norfolk countryside.

Matilda would like to invite anyone with a chronic health condition to take part to help research barriers to countryside access. She says; “If you live in Great Yarmouth I would be extremely grateful if you would take 10 minutes to fill out this anonymous questionnaire about your attitudes to representation in the countryside for those with chronic health issues. The data collected will contribute to Pathmakers understanding of the barriers to countryside access for those with chronic health issues.”

No personal information to identify you will collected. If you would like to find out more details and complete the survey please visit;
