Whose agenda for disability research? Participation, partnership and progress

He is an advisor to the UK Office for National Statistics on the ‘Life Opportunities’ disability survey and has published numerous works in the field of disability studies, many of them resulting from funded research projects that engage disabled people and their organisations as active participants in the research process.
