Services for who? Changing attitudes of service designers and deliverers which underpin discrimination experienced by disabled people with other protected characteristics.

 

  • Lead partner: Inclusion Scotland
  • Partner Organisation: DRILL Scotland National Advisory Group

 

Inclusion Scotland is focussing on the attitudes of service providers to disabled people who also identify with any of the following protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010:

  • Age
  • Gender re-assignment
  • Marriage and Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity
  • Race
  • Religion or belief
  • Sex
  • Sexual orientation

We are working in partnership with the DRILL Scotland National Advisory Group and are being guided in our research by a Co-production group of people affected by these issues.

The research is in three phases. In this first phase we are looking for people to answer an online survey to help us decide the themes to take forward in the research. At the end of the survey there is an opportunity to offer to take part in a 1:1 interview to further explore the themes.

Finally, in Phase 3 people taking part in the research can contribute to a focus group and get involved in developing solutions with policy makers and service providers.
