Research on disabled people's involvement in co-ops in the UK
You may have seen this already via Twitter or other email lists, but I was just reminded that this group exists, and so thought it worth posting here!
I am conducting research on disabled people's involvement in co-ops in the UK. I am a disabled person and a co-op member myself.
As part of my research, I am conducting a survey of co-ops (of all types) in the UK, covering topics such as how many co-ops have disabled members, what accessibility issues co-ops have considered, etc. This survey is online here: https://leeds.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/co-operatives-and-disabled-people-in-the-uk
I would be very grateful if someone from your co-op could answer the survey. It should not take longer than around 15 minutes.
I am also looking for disabled people who are or have been members of co-ops to interview. My call for participants for this part of my research is here: https://disabledcoops.uk/call-for-participants/ If you have any (current or former) disabled members who you think might be interested in this, it would be great if you could pass this on to them. Everyone who I will interview will get a £15 shopping voucher (hopefully for local co-op shops!).
For more information about me and my research, see here: https://disabledcoops.uk/about/
I am also on Twitter as @DisabledCoops.
If you have any questions about my research or anything else you'd like to tell me about, please feel free to contact me on [email protected] or via my website or Twitter.
Please do also pass this message on to any other co-ops you are in contact with who may be interested!
