Matilda is an NIHR funded feasibility study, led by Professor Taggart on the clinical and cost-effectiveness of the MATILDA intervention to support older adults with learning disability to their improve health, wellbeing and social networks compared to usual care. This 30-month study will run in N Ireland and London to test whether Matilda can help older people with learning disabilities participate in local community groups with the support of mentors without learning disabilities.
