Are you a Parent Living in an Apartment in Parramatta?

We have an opportunity for parents of 0-5s living in an apartment to participate in a local study being conducted by Western Sydney Local Health District, Centre for Population Health and City of Parramatta Council.

This study will be finding out what parents think about living in an apartment with their children aged 0-5 years and how this impacts children’s health and development.

There is not a lot of Australian research on this topic, you can help us understand if there are any health or development issues for children living in apartments. It will also help City of Parramatta Council to understand and plan for the needs of children and families living in apartments.
