Try out our new Planning Ahead Cards

Hello

I’m Becky and I’m a researcher at Kingston University working on the 'Growing Older Planning Ahead’ study.

We have worked with people with learning disabilities and their families to create some ‘Planning Ahead Cards’. These are a set of free cards to help you to think about and talk about the future.

We are looking for families to test out these cards and tell us what they think as part of a research study. You can watch a video about this study here: "Growing Older, Planning Ahead" study: Information about the TESTING stage (2022) - YouTube

We are looking for people to take part in this study who have a family member with a learning disability, who is over 35 and lives with their parent(s).

If you’re interested or would like some more information about the study, you can either call/text me on 07942265707 or email me at r.anderson@kingston.ac.uk

Thank you!

Becky

Hi Becky,

Is there any incentive for people to take part. -we can send the info to some of the people we work with

Thanks
Lucy

Hi Lucy,

Yes, anyone who takes part will get £20 when they send the feedback questionnaires back and will be able to keep the cards (so that would be £20 for the person with a learning disability and £20 for the family member). We will also come and observe some families using the cards and we would give a further £20 for that.

Please do share with anyone you think may be interested and pass on my contact details.

Many thanks

Becky
