Consulting with disabled people and their families is a core component of our work. The evidence that it generates is hugely valuable. It helps to ensure that services are designed with disabled people in mind, and deliver positive experiences and outcomes for disabled people who access them.
But how do you undertake consultation in a way that is appropriate, meaningful and robust?
In light of these questions, and to coincide with UK Disability History Month, we have published a tool on conducting accessible fieldwork. The tool distils a range of effective practice in this field drawing on desk-based research, and combines it with our experience of working with – and learning from – disabled adults, disabled children and their families.
We think the toolkit will be useful to others working in the field so have published it here. We recognise that this is an area of continuous improvement and would welcome any feedback you may have.
