Have you experienced an accidental fall from height? Perhaps you have fallen while walking or climbing, or fallen from a ladder or platform at work or at home. A new research study by the University of Central Lancashire is seeking to understand the lived experience of surviving a fall from height.

The researcher (Dr. Ruth Parkes) herself survived a fall of 20ft from a mountain path. Dr. Parkes is hoping to amplify the voices of survivors of this type of accident as there is currently very little research addressing the subject. If you are interested in taking part, here is a link to the survey: . At the end of the survey, you can choose to give your contact details if you would like to talk about your experience more in an interview.

If you prefer to complete the three survey questions on a Word document, please email Dr. Parkes on and you will be sent the questions directly.
