Disabled Students

NUS Disabled students’ campaign exists to represent, and extend and defend the rights of disabled students. We are an autonomous campaign, which means we are led by disabled students in our governance and decision-making processes.

The national officer, committee, and policies are decided by disabled student representatives from across the UK at our summer conference. The officer and committee are bound by our policies but can make decisions on interim policies between conferences.

Throughout the year, we work to positively impact disabled students’ lives and towards freedom from oppression for disabled people. We do this through campaigning, activism, research, and training which we deliver with the input of disabled students.   

The 2019/20 Disabled Students' Officer is Piers Wilkinson.
