The authors (all researchers) reflect on the difficulties and dilemmas experienced when working with people with a learning disability as research partners. They discuss some of the practical difficulties and the problems caused by others outside of the research team, not working inclusively. They describe how developing the process of partnership working was an intensive and time-consuming process and how they found it difficult to maintain an emancipatory approach, given the demands of the project.
