Disability Forum


Chair: Jennifer Harley, Head of Disability Services, University of Law.

This forum provides a consultative assembly for those staff from AccessHE member HEIs working to support progression to HE for learners with disabilities including those with dyslexia.

The Disability forum coordinated a University Information Day for Disabled and Dyslexic Learners and organised a member survey on outreach with disabled learners and inclusive practices. It is currently sharing training and good practice around inclusive models of support, mental health and HE transition, and exploring an event supporting disabled HE learners with their transition to further study or employment.
