How do you build relationships at home, work and in your community?

Nancy Salmon, a lecturer at the University of Limerick, along with a group of research students invite you to be part of a research project about 'how people with disabilities in Ireland create lasting relationships in real communities'. Over the next four years the research team will do interviews with many people in Ireland, creating a large pool of personal stories describing living with a disability, health condition or mental illness

Project Title:

Building Real Communities

Purpose of Study:

The purpose of this study is to learn how people with disabilities in Ireland create lasting relationships at home, at school or work, and in our communities. Detailed stories about these relationships will be created.

What will you be asked to do?

Ten people with disabilities will be part of this study. If you agree, you can tell your story about making and keeping strong relationships with family, friends, and people at school or work. If you agree then your talk with your research student will be recorded and later typed out. You can decide if things you say can be used when the research team tells other people about this study. No one will be told the words are from you.

Who can be in the study?

People with disabilities who are 18 years or older, who use English and who identify as having a medical diagnosis or disability are invited to be part of this study
