Health and Wellbeing in Nottingham during the 2022 Heatwave

The UK witnessed record-breaking heat in summer 2022 with temperatures rising up to 40C in parts of the country. This project investigates how the 2022 heatwave affected the health and wellbeing of people living in Nottingham.


Our focus is on capturing a nuanced reflection of people's lived experiences of the heatwave - telling a story of the heatwave in which everyday Nottingham residents can locate themselves. We are also examining how pre-existing social inequalities shaped people's experiences of negative health and wellbeing impacts during the heatwave.



Insights from this project will help inform the development of robust and socially just climate change and health policies across Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. The project is being conducted in partnership with Nottingham City Council.
