Disabled Staff Forum

What is the Disabled Staff Forum?

This is a group of disabled staff run by disabled staff and supported by the Organisation Development and Training Unit and is facilitated by the Equality and Diversity Co-ordinator. It aims to support disabled staff and acts as a discussion forum for relevant issues affecting the university, such as fire evacuation, new building projects and location maps. It also acts as a support mechanism for individuals at work.

Other interested non-disabled people are able to attend the group and guest speakers with a disability agenda are asked to feedback on the progress of relevant projects. The Forum acts as a consultative group to support the work of the Diversity and Equal Opportunities Committee.

The Chairs of the Forum attend the DEOC in order to directly report back on the experiences and priorities of their members.

How to become a member

The forum is open to anyone, regardless of disability (or lack thereof). If you wish to become a member of the Disabled Staff Forum, or if you would like more details on the work and objectives of the group, please contact the Equality and Diversity Co-ordinator, Lydia Lancaster: (ext 6419), or email the Equality and Diversity team on (ext 6494).
