We conduct research and surveys to understand the scale of some of the issues faced by families with disabled children. Thousands of families have contributed to our research, and our findings have helped us achieve a number of campaign successes.
Use the menu on the left to browse our research publications on different areas, or read this page to read some of our main findings.
Browse our research publications on family finances.
Browse our research publications on accessing services.
Browse our research publications on improving services.
Browse our research publications on family life and relationships.
Browse our research publications on stigma and discrimination.
We couldn’t conduct our research without thousands of parent carers sharing their experiences with us. If you’d like to find out about getting involved in our research, contact our campaigns manager Una Summerson at email@example.com.
We use our research to inform our campaign work, and in some cases our findings have led to changes in policy.
For example, our Stop the DLA Takeaway in Hospital report was used as evidence in the Mathieson case, in which taking away a young boy’s DLA while he was in hospital for a long time was found to be a breach of his human rights.

We couldn’t carry out our research work without your vital support. If you’re able to, please consider making a one-off or monthly donation to help us identify the areas in which families with disabled children most need us.
