Welcome to the Disabled & Mental Health Student Community!

This community is for all students who identify as Disabled*, either physically or mentally. 

Join our community to socialise with other students who are Disabled, share your experiences and work together to make sure your Students’ Union and University understands and meets the needs of all students who are Disabled.

We can achieve this by working together to run campaigns that educate the student body, celebrate our diversity and by changing or creating policies that make sure the university create an equal and fair environment. Being part of our community means you get to use your experience as a Disabled Student to improve your uni for future students who Disabled.

The Disabled Community is run by Disabled Students, for Disabled Students. Each year we will elect a Disabled and Mental Health Community Representative, who are responsible for organising meetings, representing us on Student Council and liaising with the Student Union. 

It’s free to join our community and you can decide how much time you commit. Membership in this group is anonymous. 

So join our community for the chance to meet new people, improve your uni and create a legacy for future Disabled students.

*You’re disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ ... negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.
•    ‘substantial’ is more than minor or trivial - e.g. it takes much longer than it usually would to complete a daily task like getting dressed.
