Research at the Norah Fry Centre for Disability Studies is grounded in a social model of disability.

Staff at the centre undertake applied research intending to make a positive difference to the lives of disabled people, with a special interest in people with learning (intellectual) disabilities and their families.

Both quantitative and qualitative methods are used in our research, and our projects are conducted as inclusively as possible, with staff actively striving to seek the involvement of disabled people and creating conditions to allow their maximum contribution in the research process.
