Win £75 of supermarket vouchers or a free sports bra

How would you like to win £75 of vouchers for a supermarket of your choice?

A number of simulations based on crises caused by natural events have been developed to find out how people would respond. Those who complete the study will be entered into a draw for the £75 vouchers prize.

The study takes no longer than 30 minutes and the simulations do not involve any physical activity. There is a short questionnaire, you would take part in a single simulation and end with a chat about the experience.

You will be asked to answer a further set of questions three months after you take part in the simulation. This can be completed over the telephone and will take no more than 10 minutes.

The simulations will be run over the next two months and volunteers must be over 18 years of age. All responses will be treated in confidence and you will not be identified in any research output.
