This paper is about three people with learning disabilities. They work as co-researchers. They have written this paper with support. Support is important to them. It has helped them to do the research. They each have a personal assistant. Other people working on the project also help them. They have had training and practised what they needed to do before asking other people questions. They have learnt a lot of new skills and have made a lot of decisions about the project. They enjoy their work and hope that other people will learn from their stories. They hope that other people with learning disabilities will want to do research.
