We are currently experiencing a climate of cut-backs and closures in the public and private sectors.
We know that disabled people are hit the hardest. We need to defend and extend the services and resources we have fought for in the past to ensure that disabled students can still access the support we need.
Our anti-cuts work consists of several strands:
- Continue to protect Disabled Students Allowance and promote a more effective system
- Campaign against cuts to benefits and welfare schemes at a national level
- Support students' union officers to campaign against cuts at a local and campus level
Protecting vital services against the austerity agenda is incredibly important for the Disabled Students’ campaign this year, so please keep in touch to find out more.
