All disabled people's organisations including local community groups need to know their target audience. For example, in order to provide a local service, a local community organisation needs to know who will use their services and if there are any specific large ethnic, religious or gender groups whose needs they will need to consider. The barriers faced by disabled people can depend on where they live. For example, someone who lives in a large city may face different barriers to someone who lives in a rural area. However, the data organisations need may not be available. This basic guide explains how to conduct social research to collect and use data that is not available elsewhere.
