I’m new to blogging so please bear with me!

I am a first year PhD student at the University of Leeds in the Sociology department. My research is looking at the reasons why some disabled people have been mistreated (this includes violence, neglect and much more) within health and social care in the UK. Currently, I am trying to figure out the best way to understand why this happens and how we can develop mechanisms to prevent future mistreatment. I became interested in this topic, as my mum and sister are both disabled people who use care/support services. I support them in organising these services so that they can live in their own home.
