Research has always played an important role in how we understand the experiences of people with disabilities and how we find out if policies are being put into practice and impact they are having on people.

How research is done and how it is used are important in shaping the future.

This event, hosted by partners involved in the Coronavirus and Disability Learning Study team in Wales, is the third in a series highlighting significant issues raised by the Covid-19 pandemic. We will hear from all 5 of the partners and they will be joined by Prof. Debbie Forster from Cardiff University who worked on the research that led to the Locked Out – Liberating disabled people’s lives and rights in Wales beyond COVID-19 report.

We want to hear from you if you have questions for people doing research in Wales and ideas about how findings from research can be used and who needs to use it. How can we make our messaging stronger and more effective? What do we still need to know and how can we work together to address this?

We will talk about the challenges and opportunities the COVID-19 pandemic has presented for doing and using research.

This event is free and open to all.
