Bendigo Chapter of Imagination Library

Researchers at La Trobe University are conducting a small project looking into the impacts in the Bendigo area of participation in the Imagination Library. Parents/carers of children participating in the Imagination Library are asked to respond to a survey administered by United Way on behalf of the Imagination Library, after they have been participating for some months. The La Trobe University research project has added on five (5) additional short questions to that survey, questions inquiring about the impacts (if any) on parents/carers of the Imagination Library.

Ahead of completing this survey, the La Trobe University research group wants to make sure that all potential participants understand the study and what its involvement might mean. Here you will find information about the study to read through so as to help your decision about whether or not you will consent to respond to our additional questions and participate in our study.

An information letter, explaining the details of the La Trobe University research study and providing the contact details of the Chief Investigator of this study, can be accessed by clicking on the following link INFORMATION SHEET, and a list of these additional survey questions can be accessed by clicking on the following link LTU SURVEY QUESTIONS.
