Get Involved

**Data collection is now closed**

We have almost everyone we need for the project right now.

We are still interested in hearing from young disabled people who are also members of the Travelling/Mincéir community or other ethnic minorities because their voices and experiences are missing from the project. Contact Clíona at or on 086-6032755 for more information.

What will people taking part have to do?

People taking part in this research will have to answer questions about a good experience of decision making or a time they felt listened to, a bad experience or a time they were not listened to or supported and what helps them make decisions. They will have to be happy for Clíona to use this information in her research.

These questions will be on a form that Clíona will send to you by email. You can answer the questions online using Microsoft Forms or by filling in a Microsoft Word document and sending it to Clíona by email. Clíona can also help you fill in the form.
