Disabled Staff Network

Who are we?

We are a group of disabled and non-disabled staff from both academic and support staff backgrounds who have come together to create a place of solidarity and support. Our starting point is as a support network; however, we also work from the social model of disability meaning that an accessible environment (physical and social) makes living and working so much better.
