ecdp hosts event to launch exciting new research programme
ecdp was delighted to host an event on 6 October, on behalf of Disability Rights UK (DRUK), to launch an exciting new research programme for disabled people, by disabled people.
"DRILL (Disability Research on Independent Living and Learning) is a five year U.K. wide programme funded by the BIG Lottery that is being delivered in England by Disability Rights UK and is believed to be the world's first major research programme led by disabled people. The programme aims to work in partnership with disabled people, academics and policy makers to build a better evidence base about approaches that enable people to live independently, which will be used to inform future policy and service provision, as well as giving greater voice to disabled people in the issues that impact them."
We believe that research is always best when the lived experience of disabled people is at the heart of activity.
Over the coming months and years ecdp will be actively engaging with DRUK to make this work.
For more information on the programme and how you can contribute, please see the Disability Rights UK website.
Thursday 07 July 2016 is THE BIG HEALTH DAY from 10am to 3pm.
Disability Essex provided advice, support and a place to socialise for disabled people, their families and carers since 1949 but has closed due to financial difficulties.
