Including people with learning disabilities in research – A co-produced film
A short, animated film co-produced with people with learning disabilities that explains why it is important to include people with learning disabilities and autism in research. The presenters also talk about how to properly involve people with learning disabilities and autism in research and how research funders and university-based researchers can help to make sure research is more inclusive of people with learning disabilities. This film has been made by Boingboing together with ambassadors, co-researchers, staff, students and volunteers from Arts Connect, The Resilience Revolution and the University of Brighton.
This film was originally showcased at our June 2021 Resilience Forum: Including people with learning disabilities and autism in research. You can find out more about the forum and download the presentation slides here.
Created as part of the ongoing Community Solutions for Health Equity project that Boingboing Foundation are proudly part of, we are pleased to share recordings of a series of workshops held recently in Blackpool. These workshops are free resources to be taken advantage of by any community members or organisations looking for a beginner’s guide to developing the research skills and knowledge needed to explore health inequalities in coastal areas.
Hi, I’m Maya, and I wanted to say a big thank you to you for reading.

They were produced as part of the Boingboing Activist in Residence project, which gave me the opportunity to work as an Eco-activist in Residence at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. I decided that I wanted to use this role to make two guides: one for local residents, and another for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals’ Green Champions.
