We are looking for disabled people to take part in a research project exploring when our experiences of discrimination are about more than just being disabled.
The research project is called ‘Services for Who? Changing attitudes of service designers and deliverers which underpin discrimination experienced by disabled people with other protected characteristics.’
We want to hear from disabled people across Scotland who self-identify with at least one other protected characteristic. This means:
- Disabled women
- Disabled young people
- Disabled people who have a different gender identity than they were assigned at birth (e.g. not cis-gender)
- Disabled LGBQA people
- Disabled people from minority ethnic groups; and disabled people who are migrants, or who are asylum seekers or refugees
- Disabled people who are pregnant or post-natal, or have been recently
- Disabled people who identify with a religion / religious group
- Disabled people who are married or in a civil partnership
We would like to interview you to understand what other characteristics disabled people have, how this has shaped your experiences of discrimination, and what we can do about it.
If you are interested in taking part in an interview please complete this short survey or if you would like more information, please contact Rebecca McGregor, Policy and Research Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0131 370 6711.
This project is funded by the UK Disability Research into Independent Living and Learning (DRILL) programme. It will feed in to a larger UK-wide project, Understanding and Overcoming Negative Attitudes Towards Disabled People: What works in practice?
