LTCAS is working with for Scotland's Disabled Children to gather the views and experiences of children and young people living with a disability and/or long term condition.

The work is aimed at gathering some quantitative information about children and young people's experiences which will be used to feed into the Children's Summit being organised by the Scottish Government and will inform a session that LTCAS delivering jointly with fSDC at the Scottish Learning Festival this September.

The research is conducted through an online survey and also focus groups. It should take around 15 minutes to complete or a bit longer if children are being supported to answer the questions. The research explores topics such as life, school and services with children and young people of all ages.
