Due to the complex and adaptive nature of such systems, researchers are increasingly being embedded within host organisations (i.e., those which facilitate the whole systems approach) to work...
Research attention has been directed toward coaches’ stressor experiences, yet less is known about the role of stress appraisals and psychological well-being (PWB). Considering the links between PWB, mental health, and retention in the coaching profession, this study will explore primary appraisals and PWB among sports coaches. Guided by our constr...

The aim of this meta-synthesis is to systematically search for and dra...
This article aims to provide reflections from researchers embedded within two LDPs, Calderdale (Active Calderdale) and Greater Manchester (GM Local Pilot), around efforts to WwLP as part of a WSa to enable active lives.

This study aimed to begin addressing these voids by exploring volunteer, part-time and full-...
