Research for Everyone
Research for everyone is a collaboration between people with learning disabilities, health researchers at the University of Glasgow, and third sector organisations in Scotland with the aim of making complex health research easier to understand for wider audiences.
We have translated two published health studies – one on football and neurodegenerative disease, and one on cancer and mental health – and co-created three outputs from each: a short animation, an infographic and a podcast. The three different formats were chosen to support people with different communications needs to engage with the research.
Research Voices Project
The Research Voices project was funded by the Wellcome Trust in 2018 as a joint project between The Scottish Learning Disabilities Observatory and Talking Mats.
Inclusive Peer Review Project
The Scottish Learning Disabilities Observatory is working with the University of Southampton and the British Journal of Learning Disabilities on a new project exploring inclusive peer review.
