Work In Progress was a Cornwall People First research project. You can see the important results of the research in the link at the bottom of the page.
We looked at how people with a learning difficulty can be supported into paid work.
Research means finding out about things.
The research team was made up of the Research Co-ordinator, a support worker and 4 self advocate Researchers.
