Funding for disability support at university
If you’re living with a disability, you may be eligible for carer funding at university.
If you’re a UK student seeking funding support for a carer or personal assistant at university, you’ll need to contact your local social services department. This is normally social services for the place where you normally reside when you’re not at university.
Extra financial support up to £20,000 is available through the Disabled Students’ Allowance for disabled students to cover any disability-related expenses and a non-medical helper, although this does not cover any additional support required through a private carer or personal assistant. For extra funding, please contact your local authority for a referral.
