Survey: use of behavioural science in local authorities
30 June 2021
The UCL Centre for Behaviour Change (CBC), the Behavioural Science in Public Health Network and the Hertfordshire Behaviour Change Unit is carrying out research on the use of behavioural science in local authorities. The project aims to further understanding of what activities behavioural science practitioners working in local authorities are being asked to do, and the degree to which they feel they have required competencies to deliver those activities. The results will be used to inform needs assessment for the provision of training and support for the application of behavioural science in local authorities.
If you work in a local authority and have the application of behavioural science as part of your role, either formally or informally, then we would grateful if you would consider taking part in this survey. You can access the survey and further information about the study by clicking on the link below. We anticipate that it will take 20 minutes to complete.
The survey will close on 16 July 2021.
This research forms part of a UCL MSc Behaviour Change project, with Dr Paul Chadwick (CBC Deputy Director) and Dr Vivi Antonopoulou (CBC Research Fellow) and as lead researchers from UCL, and Dr Michelle Constable (Lead for the Hertfordshire Behaviour Change Unit and Chair of the BSPN). This study has been approved by the UCL Research Ethics Committee: 18037/004
