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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
