If you click Next at the bottom of the Information Sheet it will take you to the survey which takes 10-15 minutes to complete.You should only consent to participate in this research study when you feel you understand what is being asked of you, and you have had enough time to think about your decision.

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 :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
