Warm Well Families is a research project conducted by the Centre for Health and Social Care Research at Sheffield Hallam University. The research was conducted  in Rotherham and Doncaster in partnership with the Local Authorities and the NHS. The Warm Well Families project aimed to explore factors influencing the abilities of households with children with asthma to keep warm at home in winter and access help.

Individual and group interviews were used, along with temperature and humidity measurements in homes, and framework analysis techniques. The different methods used captured the views and experience of adults living in households with children who had been diagnosed as having asthma, and also professionals working with families to ensure that we obtained an accurate understanding of factors that influence keeping warm.
