Authors: Catherine Hale, Stef Benstead, Jenny Lyus, Evan Odell and Anna Ruddock

Easy Read version by Clare Tarling and Sarah Hatch

From the introduction:

We asked disabled people who live with chronic illness to tell us about their lives.

The people who did the research also have chronic illness. 

We want people with chronic illness to lead the lives they want to, and to be respected.

More than 2,000 people took part in the project using focus groups and surveys.
