Introduction to Disability History Month from our Disabled Students' Officer Caitlyn Bembridge

What is Disability History Month?

UK Disability History Month takes place each year between mid-November and mid-December, raising awareness of and providing a platform to people with disabilities in all forms. Since the first UK Disability History Month in 2010, there has been a huge increase in interest and engagement with the month. SUBU creates events and awareness campaigns as part of Disability History Month which you can get involved in to show your support.

Take a look at what we have done in the past at SUBU for Disability History Month!


To mark UK Disability History Month 2017 SUBU ran some fantastic events to get involved in, including some guest speaker talks. SUBU also raised awareness of hidden disabilities, highlighting celebrities who have them, that have gone on to achieve fantastic successes.
