Abstract

This report charts the work of an action research programme undertaken by the Rix Centre with service users with learning disabilities and various practitioners who support them in their daily lives. The project hinged on the production and implementation of a web portal and a set of linked, locally produced websites providing 'easy read' information about transition for people with learning disabilities. This report describes and evaluates the experience of development and trialling of the Transition Portal Project with people in and around the London Borough of Newham and presents the findings of the project, some conclusions and proposals for the development of this innovative area of work.
