Join the UCSA’s Disabled Students’ Focus Group

The UCSA is holding a focus group for disabled students on Thursday 20 May, and we’d love you to join us.

This is a chance for you to let us know what you want to see improved for disabled students on campus. We would also like your input on forming a club for disabled students and what it would look like to you.
