The Students' with Disabilities Network brings together all students affected by any disability.

The purpose of the Network is to support anybody affected by a disability. It is a collective which aims to represent the views of students who self-define as disabled, including but not limited to students with physical disabilities, long term illnesses, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues.
