P2B

This inclusive research project aims to understand how young adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) find their own pathways to belonging and meaning in their daily lives.

Moving Beyond Inclusion

One of the aims for the P2B project is to show that there are different pathways that young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) take to find their sense of belonging in places and/or with people. Our team also want to move beyond just including young adults with IDD in our research table. We acknowledge that the lived experiences of young adults with IDD make them the experts in improving their own quality of life, which is why our young adult consultants lead the way through their participation in every step of the research process!

P2B would like to acknowledge the Social Sciences Health Research Council for the SSHRC Insight grant, which enables us to conduct our research. Our team would also like to thank Lawson Ministries for providing us with the photographs shown on the website.
