From November 18th-December 20th, we’re celebrating Disability History Month. Within this month, we’re not only celebrating our amazing community of disabled students and staff at the University of Manchester, but also raising awareness of issues faced by disabled students on campus and in the wider community and how to tackle these.

The Disabled Students’ Society, alongwith elected Part-Time officers, are running a series of virtual events throughout the month as well as hosting takeovers on our social media channels, writing blogs and more!
