To accompany the research findings are comments from youth with invisible disabilities and from the CUBE - the collective who has commissioned the report.

We were thrilled that this report was so well received and looking forward to the next stage: filling in the gaps!

Next we'll convene a research summit to find out what about the lived experiences of these families and youth that will help us provide support and leadership to increase outcomes and results for them... so this is to be continued!
