Draft Disability Action Plan 2022-2027

Under Section 49A of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995, as amended, the University is required to have due regard to the need to:

  • promote positive attitudes towards disabled people
  • encourage participation by disabled people in university / public life

In addition, Section 49B of this Act places a duty on the University to prepare a plan outlining how it proposes to fulfil the Section 49A duty outlined above.

The University's draft Disability Action Plan for the period 2022-2027 demonstrates the University's commitment to fulfilling the two positive disability duties through a series of cross-functional, new and unique actions.

The actions have been informed by a detailed Three Year Review of the previous Disability Action Plan and by engagement with key stakeholders, including the University's Staff Disability Network. Feedback from Staff Surveys for Academic Staff and Professional and Support Services were also used to develop actions.

We welcome your comments on the proposed action measures in the draft Disability Action Plan and / or your views with regards to other ways in which the University's commitment to the disability duties could be better demonstrated.

This consultation will close on Friday 16 December 2022 at 4pm.

A summary of feedback will be posted here and comments reflected in the final Disability Action Plan.
