Young Disabled people’s research project

12 May 2021

Scope and University of Sheffield’s iHuman research team have co-produced a research model to explore and identify connections and priorities in Disabled young people’s lives. ‘Making connections: for Disabled young people to live their lives’ is a new way of understanding what resources and relationships Disabled young people need to live their lives in ways that meet their hopes and aspirations. Top priorities identified were:

  • Promote inclusive environments to help give Disabled young people a sense of belonging, enhance their mental health and well-being, and raise aspirations around employment and education
  • Enhance digital lives by making digital content inclusive and accessible
  • Develop inclusive technology to promote Disabled young people’s freedom, independence and mobility.
