Leave a comment

Dr Katherine Runswick-Cole, Senior Research Fellow in Disability Studies & Psychology appeared on Stockport radio station Pure FM 107.8 to discuss what the comprehensive spending review means for people with learning disabilities.  This followed the publication of her blog on  Metropolis, the University’s policy think tank web page. You can read the blog here.

Katherine described the mounting challenges facing people with learning disabilities who want to work, who use social care and who want to live independently.  In the discussion, Katherine drew on findings from a recent research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council Big Society? Disabled People with Learning Disabilities and Civil Society.
