People with learning disabilities from black and minority groups: An exploration of their experiences and views of services

Completed   2014


Individuals who have learning disabilities and who are from Black and Ethnic Minority (BME) communities consistently report lower levels of satisfaction with a wide range of services including social care services. They are also less likely to be engaged with those services. The major focus of this work was to collect accounts from a cross-section of people with learning disabilities who are from Black and Ethnic Minority communities. The study engaged directly with adults with learning disabilities, in order that their views could be understood, and their experiences represented.
