Simon To Look At What Affects The Disabled

Disabled people are being sought to take part in research on the impact their impairment has on their identity and lifestyle.

Simon Stevens, aged 26, from Coventry, has received a Scope Millennium Award to carry out unique research into the subject.

Simon, who has cerebral palsy and runs his own disability consultancy company, is using his award of nearly 5,000 to examine how and why disabled people choose how they live and the daily equipment and assistance they use.

To pursue his research, Simon requires 15 disabled participants from the Midlands area to take part. Each participant must be willing to take part in 3 interviews over a six month period.

Anyone interested in receiving further details can contact Simon at the address shown above. The closing date for applications will be 10th November 2000.

He said:

"This is groundbreaking stuff. I am unaware of any similar research and hope this project will reveal many new issues that will benefit all disabled people."

The Millennium Awards Scheme is financed by the Millennium Commission to enable people to undertake action projects that benefit themselves and the wider community.
