“Of course I want to have my say. If research is a way to do so, then yes, I’m in, I’ll help. Ignorance is the biggest issue we face.” – Nnenna

Many things are assumed about caregivers’ perceptions but research that actually asks them directly is thin on the ground. For this reason, we are undertaking this study to understand family members’ experiences of and perceptions of other people’s attitudes to learning disability, and more specifically towards family members’ themselves as the parent/sibling or close relative of someone with a learning disability. We are looking to hear directly from family members of individuals with learning disabilities (children as well as adults) – they will be asked to complete a survey that will take approximately 20 minutes. The study has formal ethical approval from University College London’s Research Ethics Committee. Please copy and paste this link:
