We are delighted that Dr Emily Henderson has been invited to join the British Academy’s Higher Education Policy Development Group.
This is a forum for discussion of issues relevant to current higher education and research policy. The Group draws on expertise from within the Academy’s Fellowship and more broadly across the UK higher education sector, to explore developments in policy and society which relate to universities, researchers, students and staff, with particular reference to SHAPE disciplines (Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts for People and the Economy).
The Group’s discussions inform the development of the policy positions the Academy takes in its role as the voice of the humanities and social sciences, and guide the projects and activities the Academy carries out to build its evidence base and stimulate debate on topics which affect the health of our disciplines.

WEBINAR: SUPPORTING THE WELL-BEING OF DADS OF DISABLED CHILDREN
Join our webinar where family researchers and dads of disabled children talk about the importance of father well-being and launch their online resource designed by dads for dads. Fathers of disabled children are rarely involved in research, which means that we know little about their experiences and the kinds of support that would be helpful. In response to this, a group of dads of disabled children from Coventry and surrounding areas worked with Emma Langley, a family researcher at the University of Warwick, to capture their experiences and create a resource aimed at supporting the well-being of other dads.
We warmly invite fathers of disabled children, family members, researchers, and professionals to a webinar where we will talk about the importance of supporting fathers of disabled children and showcase the free online video resource we have created.
Date: Wednesday 31st March 2021 Time: 6.00PM – 7.00 PM GMT Location: Online webinar (presenters only on view). Register your place at: https://dads.eventbrite.co.uk. A log-in link will be emailed to you in advance.
