Disability and Inclusion Network

The Disability and Inclusion Network provides support to those who have, or are affected by physical or invisible disabilities.

The Disability and Inclusion Network is committed to achieving equality for all those who work across both campuses.

We aim to ensure that the University demonstrates a fair and supportive environment which provides equality of opportunity and freedom from unlawful discrimination on the grounds of disability, including mental health difficulties and neurodivergent differences.

The network is proud to support the University's diverse community and encourages and celebrates its full contribution to a University life where all colleagues are treated equally and with respect. It meets regularly throughout the year as part of our commitment to the Equality Act 2010 and the University’s People Strategy.

The main purpose of the network is to raise awareness of both physical and invisible disabilities and to make comments and challenge the University practices and policies.

The network will also provide a forum for staff who have or are affected by physical or invisible disabilities, allowing them to raise issues and seek support.

Any member of staff who identifies as having or being affected by physical or invisible disabilities can join the network and be involved in shaping the agenda for the future of disability inclusivity in the University’s EDI agenda.
