Students with Disabilities

students' with disabilities network

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.


Please log in to join this organisation.


The Disabilities Officer is elected once a year to lead the work of the Network.
