Study Into Effects Of Ageing With A Disability

People over the age of 50 with long-term disabilities are being asked to take part in a new study into the effects of ageing. Sheffield Hallam University and Partners for Inclusion have teamed up to carry out research into the effects of ageing on people with long term disabilities. “The lived experience of disabled people is missing from conversations about what it means to grow older.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
