Disability Equality Scheme - Making your voice heard

Tuesday 14 March | 12.15 - 1.15 | 8W 2.4

As part of the Disability Awareness Week the University is actively seeking to learn from the experiences of disabled students on campus.

David Skidmore, who is leading the Disability Equality Scheme and Mark Ames, Head of Student Services, would like to hear about your experiences and any ideas you have for how things might be improved to promote access.

From December 2006, all public authorities, including all HEIs, will have new duties to promote disability equality. The legislation introduces general and specific duties to promote disability equality and requires us to be even more proactive about how we mainstream disability equality to ensure we build disability equality into everything that we do.

This means, for example, that the University of Bath will need to take account of disabled people when making decisions and developing policy and ensure that disabled people have been involved in developing our Disability Equality Scheme.

If you are not able to come to this session and would like your view to be heard, please e-mail D.Skidmore@bath.ac.uk
