Research and 'Disability': Accounts, Biographies and Policies

By Barbara Fawcett and Jeff Hearn


This article reviews and re-evaluates a qualitative research project carried out in England in the late\ud 1990s. The project was informed from its inception by the social model of disability, and explores how\ud �disability� is conceptualised within the accounts of participants defined by others as disabled. It also\ud examines participants� views of community care services. As part of this discussion, notions of\ud collaborative and emancipatory research are appraised. The implications of the findings for policy and\ud practice in the field of social work and social care are also discussed
