IncludeAge Community Advisory Groups

IncludeAge has two Community Advisory Groups (CAGs) that are made up of third sector stakeholders and those with lived experiences relevant to the project – one which focuses on Learning Disabilities – The Discovery Group and one which focuses on LGBT+ – The Gold Group.

These groups inform and guide the research process and are involved in a range of activities such as developing and piloting the research instruments, identifying and recruiting participants, developing research materials, data analysis and ensuring that the interests of people with Learning Disabilities and/or who are LGBT+ are represented.

Please note that not all CAG group members are included below – only those who consented to sharing their photos and/or their biographies on the website.
