The Intersectional Effects of Disability and Social Class on Becoming NEET – Research

This research project is funded by the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust and is looking to interview visually impaired young people (aged 18-30) from disadvantaged backgrounds, who are not currently in education, employment or training, to form a better understanding the role that disability and social class have on young people’s educational and employment experiences.

These interviews will take about an hour (online/telephone/face-to-face) and aims to learn more about the educational and occupational barriers/inequalities faced by visually impaired young people. Every young person that takes part will receive a £20 ‘Love to Shop’ voucher.
