    Thank you for partnering in this research. There are so many implications arising from climate change and this issue of how it impacts people who work outdoors will impact my area significantly (Goulburn) NSW.

    I also work in the human service industry with vulnerable families with very young children. During the heatwaves the stress in these households intensified, families already tending towards social isolation were even more bunkered down at home and the poor quality of their housing meant that it was sometimes hotter inside the house than outside. So many lines of enquiry are opening up. Adaptation and mitigation measures are so urgent.

    Thanks again. Mhairi
