As soon as I saw the Disabled Student Officer position a simple question popped into my head
"What is classed as Disabled? Who is represented and supported by this role?"
A conversation with the Democracy Team enlightened me to see that it covers Accessibility,
Additional Needs and Neuro-Diverse. So why isn't this title encompassing of that?!
Together let's get that changed and encourage those under the umbrella to reach out for
further adaptations and support.
Secondly, let’s get societies to provide Accessibility sessions for those that need it,
this encourages conversation, inclusivity and raises awareness with all students!
