This report is about how to involve people with learning difficulties in research. It is for anyone and everyone who does research, takes part in research or pays for research. It is for people in universities, people in government, people in policy organisations, those who give grants for research and, of course, people with learning difficulties. This report was produced by a team of researchers with learning disabilities. In 2002, the DH Policy Research Programme funded twelve academic research studies designed to assess the impact of the Valuing People White Paper. Each of the research teams had indicated it would involve people with learning disabilities in the research process. The authors of the report were funded by DH to assess the extent and nature of this involvement, and to make recommendations based on lessons learned. The team of people with learning disabilities were provided with training and logistic support by Values into Action, but otherwise took full control of the whole research process.
