An exploration of the Wallsend Children’s Community’s Emergency Response Grant as an Emerging Necessity

Aggar, Emma and Deacon, Lesley (2022) An exploration of the Wallsend Children’s Community’s Emergency Response Grant as an Emerging Necessity. Project Report. University of Sunderland, Sunderland. (Unpublished)

Item Type: Monograph (Project Report)


The effect of Covid-19 (and subsequent national lockdowns) has been felt across the Globe on a Macro level with organisations such as the World Health Organisation advising Nations; to the Micro level of individuals working from home and keeping a social distance. This research explores and discusses what led families to apply for Emergency Response Grants (ERGs) from the Wallsend Children’s Community (WCC), funded by Save the Children. By using a biographical interview approach producing rich data, common themes became acutely prominent using thematic analysis. Such themes identified were: Indirect Domestic Abuse (DA), Child Disability and Inflation. All of which were found to be foundational upon a subtheme of insufficient welfare support.
