Adult Social Care Research and Action

We are inviting disabled people in the North-West area to our session on research and action for the adult social care system in Northern Ireland.

Tuesday 16 November 2018

From 12.00pm to 13.00pm

In Disability Action, Derry

58 Strand Rd, Londonderry BT48 7AJ

If you are a disabled person living in the North West Ulster area you are invited to take part in our session in adult social care. The session will start with a focus group on attitudes impacting on independent living choices. You will be part of a focus group with around 15 other disabled people.  The focus group will be facilitated by Ivanka who is the lead researcher.  This discussion will focus on the attitudes you have experienced in relation to social care and independent living.  You don’t need to be an expert to take part  – it is just your experience that we want to hear.

We will cover all travel expenses for those attending and all the papers are available in a range of formats on the day – just let us know your requirements when you book.

To register for the focus group and for reasonable adjustments, please contact Ivanka Antova on Telephone: 028 9029 7880 or email [email protected]
