Care Professionals

Social Care Professional Research Participants Wanted!

Social Care Professionals wanted to participate in a new research project:

  • Do you support people with intellectual disabilities to make everyday decisions about their lives?
  • Do you have experience of working with the Mental Capacity Act 2005?
  • Would you like to share your experiences of supported decision-making?

A new research project, exploring the connections between legal capacity and mental capacity, is looking for research participants to discuss supported decision making by people with intellectual disabilities. This research seeks to explore a diversity of practice in supporting people with a range of intellectual disabilities (like dementia, acquired brain injuries, or learning disabilities) to make everyday legally-relevant decisions. Legally relevant decisions include big and small everyday decisions like: where to live, whether to enter into a contracts (like employment, or buying and selling goods, services and property), who to have contact with, who to have relationships with and how to spend time.

Participation in this research will involve one interview with a researcher, at a time and location of your convenience.

This research has ethical approval from the University of Birmingham.

For more information about the project, please get in touch with Dr Ezgi Tascioglu by email on or by phone on 0121 414 4960. Alternatively you can fill in the Enquiry Form:
