This week, Tara Elie speaks to the truly inspirational RIP STARS:
Here’s how the Disabled Young Researchers describe themselves:
We are a group of disabled young people aged 17 – 25 from Coventry, UK. We have been trained by Anita Franklin and Geraldine Brady (Coventry University) to be researchers. We lead our project – research by young disabled people for disabled young people. We have a voice and we want to give a voice to other disabled young people. We want to use research evidence to improve the lives of disabled young people.
Each member of the groups has a story to tell, from their own, personal experiences of how young people with disabilities are treated in schools and colleges.
