DOING RESEARCH INCLUSIVELY: Guidelines for Co-Producing Research with People with Disability

Abstract art background, arrow, blue

The Guidelines set out key benefits, principles and strategies that underpin the DIIU and UNSW’s approach to co-producing research with people with disability. The content is drawn from a comprehensive review of the literature, the experience of leading inclusive researchers at UNSW, and DIIU’s community partner organisations of people with disability.

    The Disability Innovation Institute at UNSW Sydney is committed to a process of

    co-production to underpin our approach to inclusive research. In inclusive research,

    people with disability are involved not just as participants, but as co-creators of

    knowledge. The Disability Innovation Institute recognises that inclusive research:

    • Promotes the inclusion and well-being of people with disability.
    • Explores issues that are or are likely to become important to people with disability, drawing on their experience to shape research process and outcomes.
    • Recognises, fosters and communicates the contributions people with disability make to research.
    • Provides information that people with disability can use to campaign for change.
