Help boost the use of disability/disability-related survey questions in research!

Researchers are inviting Disabled people to help review disability survey questions and match them to a disability model, a group of terms that can be used together to help try to understand the concept of disability. This will help researchers and policy makers use more disability survey questions and better understand disability. The project will include four activities: an introduction to the study, the survey questions matching activity, a post-activity discussion, and a reflective discussion.

They are looking for twelve members of the public who can contribute to this study, particularly adults who are in North-East, North-Central, and East London, and Mid and South Essex geographical regions and currently identify as disabled.

For further information on study please checkout our understanding disability advert.

If you are interested in helping with the study, please contact Eirini ( or William ( who will be happy to talk through everything and answer any questions you may have.

They want you to feel comfortable and able to fully participate so please let them know about any individual needs that you might have. Please be assured that a conversation with William or Eirini will not commit you to being involved if you decide it is not right for you!

Closing date: 25th February 2023

This is a study by the National Institute of Health and Care Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaboration North Thames.
