Disability Services Panel
Are you a disabled student or researcher? Would you like to influence the work of Disability Services? Join our Student Panel!
The Disability Services panel is a joint group of staff, researchers and students. Our panel members give us valuable feedback on our provision to help us improve, as well as generating their own ideas about new projects and developments.
Our Panel is chaired by students with the student voice at the heart of our work. It’s a great opportunity to develop skills in leadership, negotiation, diplomacy, writing – and much more.
Things our Panel has achieved:
✔ Creating an introductory video for Disability Services - including scripting, directing and filming
✔ Starting a newsletter for all things disability across campus to improve our communication
✔ Helping our Service to improve its resources for disabled students funding
✔ Taking part in workshops to learn more about assistive technology

Applications for 2020/21 have now closed. We’ll be back recruiting for new members in September. Please contact Megan Owen, Disability Services Engagement Officer, for further details.
The Disability Services student newsletter
Members of our Student Panel also help to produce our student newsletter. Going out twice per semester, the newsletter includes information on news, events and all things disability across campus.
