Evidence and Research

SCLD is focused on building  evidence and research relevant to learning disability in Scotland. We work with experts to build a robust picture of the lives of people with learning disabilities in Scotland, their experience of policy and the impact on The keys to life strategy.

SCLD seeks to understand what works in relation to service delivery and practice by commissioning research and using the evidence it generates to influence policy development and practice. We also work with the Scottish Government and other key stakeholders to maximise the value and use of evidence and research relevant to learning disability to ensure it underpins strategy and policy.

Contact Claire Stuart, our Evidence & Research Manager, for more information about our work in this area.
