Hidden Disabilities


Please log in to join this organisation.

Hi! We are the Hidden Disabilities Society. 

We aim to create an inclusive and welcoming campus for all students regardless of disability or illness. 

We have some big goals this year icluding:

  • Creating better support for students with hidden disabilities (and visable disabilities)
  • Ensuring that support from named advisors is up to expected standard 
  • Working with sports teams to esure they are welcoming for all students and clear with what resonable adjustments they can make for students with additional needs
  • Creating more casual sports activities that may be more suitable for the needs of students with disabilities
  • Sending regular newsletters to our members explaining what work we are doing behind the scenes and signposting to to helpful resources
  • Holding regular events including weekly support sessions to allow students with hidden disabilities to meet new people with similar experiences.

We can't wait to have you as part of the society!

The best way to contact us is through our Instagram page: @essex_hds
