New Research Assistant Post

14 November 2017

New Research Assistant post available for a study exploring support for adults with learning disabilities to find loving relationships

We are looking for a Full time Research Assistant to help us:

·         explore the experiences and social care needs of adults with IDD in relation to finding partners, forming and maintaining long term relationships.
·         investigate the model of specialist dating agencies for people with IDD, in particular their funding and staffing structures, their longevity and ‘success’ rate.
·         explore with social care practitioners and family carers the myriad ways in which they could, and perhaps, do support adults with IDD to form and maintain relationships.
