Learning Disability Research Group Launch

Please note: the event will be held on Zoom

Joining link will be sent after registration. 

You are invited to the launch of our new Learning Disability Research Group at the Faculty of Health, Social Care & Education.

We are interested in doing research that MATTERS to people with learning disabilities.
We think that research should INCLUDE people with learning disabilities.

The Learning Disability Research Group will share experiences and ideas about:
• Research we have done
• Research we want to do
• How we can do research together with people with learning disabilities
If you are interested in this too, you are welcome to join the group - whether you already have done learning disability research, or would like to, or are just interested in hearing about it.

The Learning Disability Research Group is chaired jointly by Professor Irene Tuffrey-Wijne and Richard Keagan-Bull, who is a newly employed researcher at the Faculty (and has a learning disability himself).

Our group welcomes both faculty staff and external members, including people with learning disabilities. We have joined forces with Mencap Research Team, who will join our meetings. All meetings, therefore, will be accessible to all, and hopefully very friendly! For accessibility reasons, we will hold meetings on Zoom, not Teams.

So... Join us for our virtual Launch Event on Tuesday 30th March, 12.00-13.00.
We will meet every last Tuesday of the month.


Booking is essential to attend this event.
