We have undertaken a number of research and evaluation projects related to disabilities. Our staff have extensive experience of carrying out primary research with people with cognitive and physical disabilities. This have included research for clients such as the Scottish Government, Golden Lane Housing and the Good Things Foundation. Our research in this area has focused on people who are experiencing social isolation, digital exclusion and housing needs.

Golden Lane Housing

Golden Lane Housing (GLH) was established as an independent national charity by Mencap to help tackle the problems that people with a learning disability face when trying to finding a home. Just Economics supported GLH to produce their first social impact report for the Social Stock Exchange in 2015, with an update in 2016. This included theory of change development, analysis of existing data as well as the gathering of case study data.

Living Digitally: an evaluation of CleverCogs

CleverCogs™ is a digital care and support system developed by Blackwood Homes and Care. It was designed to increase digital participation in adults receiving care and support packages and enable increased use of technology enabled care. Just Economics was commissioned by Carnegie UK Trust to carry out a mixed methods study to measure changes in outcomes for customers before and after the introduction of the technology. The linked report sets out the key findings from the evaluation. The full evaluation report is available on request.
