What We Do

We're funded by your Students' Union to host events and activities that reach out to students with a disabillity. We met you during Welcome Week and Refreshers Week to provide a space for peer-support, and a relaxing environment to make friends. This group is provided as a safe space to talk about the struggles our members face while at university, and get the encouragement and empathy they need. We reguarly attend Welcome Fair, so come by to Welcome Fair and chat to us - or if that's not your scene, get in touch!

Our Long Term Goal of Change

We exist because it is "hard being a student, and even harder being a disabled student". Each year we will create a group the committee and others can rely on for peer-support, and gather what we feel needs to change to fulfil our academic needs. This past year we've met with the University's Equality Diversity and Inclusion department manager, to share our thoughts on problems with fascilities on campus like faulty elevators. 

We Are Protected

Our Society is a Protected Society, which means we never close down, are free to join, and are funded by the Students' Union for our events and activities. 

This is because we represent a key demographic of Birmingham City University, and are recognised by the National Union of Students as part of their Liberation Campaign

As a member, you'll be included in the random sample to attend the Student Advisory Panel - voting on the ideas of students from across BCU.

We have no events at the moment, but come back regularly to see what we're up to!
