This is a study into the living situation and support structures for people with disabilities living in rural areas in India.

It is a qualitative study showing how many people with disabilities live on the edge of society, being totally dependent on support from their family. It also shows the impact this has on informal caregivers – always the women – in these families.

This is the PhD study of Shivani Gupta who lives and works in India.
