Disability Data Lab learning paper

A practical guide to disability data

Bond Disability and Development Group

Tuesday, December 3, 2019

This learning paper is a guide and reference tool for organisations looking to be more inclusive in their programming generally, and specifically in their data collection practices.

The Bond Disability and Development Group (DDG) developed this learning paper to share discussions from the DDG’s Data Lab workshop on 22 October 2019. The Data Lab workshop was the first in a series of learning events funded by the National Lottery Community Fund to support the mainstreaming of disability within international development programmes.

This first workshop focused on why organisations need to collect disability data, what tools are available and practical ways in which these can be used.

This is not a definitive or exhaustive guide, but is rather intended to be a helpful starting point and signpost for readers to available resources.
