International Day of Persons with Disabilities.

Monday 3rd December marks the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities. The theme of this year’s IDPD is “Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality”. To celebrate the day, the Student Disability Service is hosting an information event in Augustine House Atrium 11am – 3pm. The event will include stands from various charities and local organisations who can provide support and information for a range of disabilities.

CCCU Teams will also be on hand to provide information on the support available to all students.

Among the attendees will be:

  • Student Support, Health & Wellbeing
  • Disability Rights UK
  • Students’ Union
  • MS Centre
  • Lily’s Bistro
  • Kent Association for the Blind
  • Library Services

If you want to find out more about what support the Student Disability Team offer, have a look at our student web pages. The pages include ways to get in touch for support and advice if you are experiencing (or potentially facing) disabling barriers. You can also listen to Alicia, a current student who has accessed the Student Disability Service, on what support she received and how it’s helped her succeed.
