Enabling not disabling

As your Disabled Students' Officer I will focus on the following five areas:

  1. Work to make sure all buildings are accessible to students with different access needs. Spaces for wheelchair users in lecture rooms, loop systems for people who use hearing aids, and working microphones in lecture theatres, automatic doors
  2. Ensure disabled students who identify as queer or BAME have a voice. I will work with other societies and officers to ensure you are given all the support you need from the people who may understand your situation better than I can
  3. Improvement of accomodation and on-campus facilities such as accessible toilets
  4. Ensure disabled students are consulted on any building or renovations to ensure all accessibility needs are met
  5. Work with Sport Brighton to introduce disability sports
