DRN's Co-production Group

Archway into the quad

The DRN is currently working with Barnardo’s, the Mae Murray Foundation and Action for Deaf Youth to establish a co-production group that will collaborate with DRN members to facilitate the meaningful involvement of disabled people in research. This group will help to identify priority research issues for disabled people and promote the engagement of disabled people at all stages of the research process from the formation of ideas for research through to impact activities. This group will also assist DRN members with funding applications that more authentically reflect the core issues affecting the lives of disabled young people and extend their use of creative and participatory disability research methods. The launch of this co-production group is planned for the early autumn. If anyone is interested in getting involved please contact Prof Berni Kelly at:
