WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU 

 

 

  

What’s your experience of growing older as a Black British person with lifelong disability?

  • Are you 40 years or older?
  • Are you of Black or Black Mixed heritage?
  • Do you have Down’s Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Usher Syndrome, Learning Disability, William’s Syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Prader Willi Syndrome, Spina Bifida, Visual or Hearing impairment you have lived with for most of your life(since birth or childhood)?

We would like to interview you and hear about your experience of getting older. 

Interviews should take no longer than 90 minutes.

Your views shared during the interview will help us better understand what it means to age well with a lifelong disability in Black people in the UK. 

 

If you wish to participate, you will be given a £30 Amazon voucher on completion of the study as a thank you for your time.
