Background: Faith in the lives of UK families with an adult with intellectual disabilities is an under-researched area with little existing literature.

Grace, Gerald – Policy Futures in Education, 2012
This article argues that faith-based schools are a necessary feature of democratic and pluralistic societies and a legitimate expression of human rights as constituted in the European Convention in Human Rights (2000).
