Series: Centre for Disability and Social Incusion
The 2012 London Paralympics have the potential to improve social outcomes for disabled people in many ways, from
challenging negative stereotypes of disability, to raising the profile of disability within community and service
planning processes. But what does it take to make this potential a reality?
Suzanne Dowse will talk about the initial findings of a review into the potential social impacts of the 2012 Paralympics, the opportunities and risks presented by the event and future plans for this research.
