Research output: Other contribution


It is widely recognised that minority ethnic groups experience social and material disadvantage and face barriers in their access to statutory support services. Families with a disabled child have been identified as being particularly poorly served. Research carried out at the Universities of Bradford and York is the first to provide detailed information at a national level of the needs and circumstances of families from minority ethnic groups caring for a severely disabled child, comparing the findings with those from an earlier survey of white families from the same database.
