Research on young disabled people's transitions to paid work and out-of-work welfare benefits in England.


My name is Inga Reichelt. I am a research student at the University of Leeds. I am 27 years old and I grew up in Germany. I have had cerebral palsy since I was born and I am a young disabled person.

I want to understand the lives of other young disabled people in the United Kingdom and Germany, in relation to work and welfare.

Are you disabled or do you have a chronic condition or impairment of any kind?

Are you between 16 and 26 years old?

Do you live in England?

Are you having problems finding suitable or desirable paid work?

Or are you experiencing challenges while in paid work?

Or do you need changes made to enable you to work?

Or do you have positive experiences of paid work?

Then I would like to talk to you!

You are invited to take part in an interview for my Doctoral research. The interview will take about two hours. It can take place at your preferred location. You will get £10 as a reward.

Thank you for your interest!
