Work Package 2

Understanding Place Experiences of People with Learning Disabilities and LGBT+ People

Learn about this work package.

Work Package 2 is about capturing the experiences inclusion, exclusion and community participation of middle to older aged LGBT+ people or middle to older aged people with Learning Disabilities in different places. This might mean places in their geographical, interest or online communities, and we will explore how past experiences shape experience in the present day. The focus here is to investigate how welcome and included or left out our excluded different people feel in different places, and what contributes to that, so that as a group we can think of ways to improve feelings and experiences of inclusion.
