Description: KT-EQUAL is a consortium of UK researchers dedicated to extending
quality life for older and disabled people.

We work to ensure that years of investment in high-quality research
translate into real benefits that have an impact on people's lives.

- We set out to show how ageing and disability research can make a
difference to people's lives.
- We bring together researchers, policymakers and service users to
focus on the issues that are important to older and disabled people.
- We influence regulations and good practice across a range of
industries -- including inclusive product design, rehabilitation, and
the built environment.
- We gather and share knowledge and expertise about people’s health
and wellbeing, independent living, self-management and quality of
- We seek out the views and involvement of older and disabled people
and their advocates.
