Disability benefits survey
News

The Brain Charity has partnered with the University of Liverpool on a pioneering research study around disability benefits, but we need more people to share their stories.

Would you like to take part in the project? It aims to examine the impact benefit changes have had on people with severe disabilities, and their experiences of moving from one benefit to another.

The study would involve you participating in a recorded Zoom, WhatsApp or MS Teams video interview from the comfort of your own home, which would last an hour or less.

You will be invited to discuss your experience of benefits changes over the last 10 years and how these have impacted on you.

You won’t be asked to give your name in the recording, and the interview will be anonymised.

It is hoped the study will raise awareness of the impact of benefits changes on people with disabilities.

If you would like to take part or want more information, please email Louise Hardwick, the lead researcher, on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 0151 794 2994.
