Enabling students to live independently
Campaigners say they fear that without help disabled students will be unable to cope with University life.
There has been an increase in disabled undergraduates in recent years but fewer than 15% of disabled people have a degree, a much lower percentage than the general population.
The government is also making changes to disabled students’ allowances, which the National Union of Students is fighting.
The NUS Disabled Student’s campaign aims to remove the stigma from all disabilities, challenge perceptions and encourage all members of our society to take a positive attitude towards understanding the nature of disability and overcoming prejudices.
We support young adults like Kate Snape to live independently, watch what life is like for a disabled student here.
