Countability

The Countability research project was commissioned by public service providers to address a data gap regarding the barriers and opportunities faced by disabled people living in Brighton & Hove, in regards to key aspects of daily life. The research was led by the Fed Centre for Independent Living and started with one question:
What barriers, challenges and opportunities are experienced by disabled
adults, aged 18-65, who live in Brighton and Hove?
The research was guided by the Social Model of Disability, which considers disabled people to be disabled by social barriers rather than their individual impairments or health conditions. The focus of the research was therefore on the barriers, challenges and opportunities shared by disabled people in society.
The Countability project started by gathering available data from local service providers on disabled people, how they used services and their experiences of living in the city. Local data was found to be quite limited, with no consistent approach to data collection on disabled people and varying levels of cooperation received from different departments within individual service providers. This highlighted the need for extensive primary research.
