Current Research Projects
The following research projects are currently recruiting participants.
Action Cerebral Palsy are asking for feedback from parents about their experiences of the services they have accessed for their children and young people with cerebral palsy.
This survey will also serve as a follow up from the one that was conducted in 2014 for the Parliamentary Inquiry and will help to measure change, if any, in families' experiences since that original survey. The information gathered through this survey will also provide evidence to the current series of All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) sessions on Cerebral Palsy that focuses on the education, teaching and learning for children with cerebral palsy.Complete the Action CP Survey

The National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death (NCEPOD) are currently developing a study to look at the transition of care from child to adult healthcare services.
They are looking for young people and parent carers to become involved with this work as focus group participants, participating in online and face to face focus groups (when possible) to help determine what matters to young people in the process of transition.
