Kindred and Derby County are collaborating on a new research project
Kindred Group is extending its partnership with Derby County’s Community Trust and their Team Talk program for another year.
This enables a new research project in collaboration with the University of Derby to understand the effect Team Talk has based on challenges caused by Covid-19.
Kindred Group has, through its 32Red brand, extended its partnership with Derby County’s Community Trust and Team Talk. In addition to supporting the successful community project in Derby, the collaboration will include a new research project in collaboration with the University of Derby.
The year-long research project will be led by Professor David Best and study how effective Team Talk has been during the current pandemic. The research will be based on a series of interviews and surveys, as well as other analyzes. The research is presented in a report at the end of 2021.
“The renewed investment means that the Derby County Community Trust can continue to carry out some of the fantastic work and results we saw during the first year of the partnership. It will be very interesting to work with the University of Derby to develop a robust research and evaluation project that evaluates Team Talk’s impact on the well-being of both the individual and society, ”said Neil Banbury, General Manager UK Kindred Group.
“After a successful year, we are pleased that 32Red is committed to this project for another year. The renewal of our partnership means we can expand the project and reach even more men suffering from mental illness in the coming years, ”explains Simon Carnall, Head of Community at Derby County Community Trust.
