Diane Cotterill and colleagues on a study exploring the challenge of managing finances for people with learning difficulties

This research study was initiated by York People First, an independent self-advocacy group run by and for people with learning disabilities. With the support of occupational therapy and nursing students who were completing practice placements, supermarkets were contacted to highlight challenges some people with learning disabilities experience when shopping. They responded, stating that they would require research to take forward any of the issues that had been raised. The aim of the study was therefore to investigate supermarket shopping experiences of people with learning disabilities with the intention of developing recommendations to provide to supermarkets.
