(From the Website of the University of Leeds)
My current research focuses on how direct payments alter policy perceptions of disabled people. In particular, my research looks at the way disabled people use these payments to employ personal assistants.
Effectively, my research examines how direct payments have transformed disabled people from passive recipients of welfare into active employers.
