Inclusive research

Embracing an inclusive university research culture

This project is a collaboration between health researchers at the University of Glasgow, self-advocates with learning disabilities and third sector organisations in Scotland.

This is a pilot project where we are translating two complex studies about health – one on football and neurodegenerative disease, and one on cancer and mental health – and co-creating three outputs from each: a short animation, an infographic and a podcast. These will be accessible outputs created with and for people with learning disabilities.
