ESRC Funding!

We are thrilled to announce that Living Life to the Fullest (ES/P001041/1) has been awarded funding by the Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC)!

Getting the funding has been a long journey, and we are very grateful to the ESRC and our reviewers for taking the time to see such value in our project.

In short, it simply wouldn’t have been possible without our brilliant community research partners (and kind others – colleagues, reviewers, friends) who supported the funding bid  in various ways. Thank you so, so much for your time, commitment and effort. The strength of our project, and a key reason in why it has been funded in what remains a desperately difficult climate, is because of its commitment to co-production: working together in collaboration for real and meaningful social change that makes a difference in the lives of disabled young people and their families.

We would also like to thank the University of Sheffield and Manchester Metropolitan University for their support.

The project will begin in  April 2017 and will run until 2020. If you want to learn more, please see our film! We are so excited to begin and look forward to getting going! Keep up to date with our research via this blog (click the ‘Follow’ button), we will be updating it regularly.
