The research undertaken by the Trust focuses on issues relevant to, and the experiences of, disabled people and people with mental health challenges in Gloucestershire.
Researchers in the team work closely with colleagues across the Trust so that our research findings can drive the Trust’s work to create systematic change in the county. We share our research findings widely as part of bringing about this change. A cornerstone of our approach is ensuring that taking part in the research is as accessible and inclusive as possible, as are the range of ways in which we share research findings.
