Disability Recognition Month 2023: call for funding open

September 29th, 2023

As part of the university’s ongoing commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion, we are inviting applications for the celebration of Disability Recognition Month, which will take place from 16 November – 16 December 2023.

This year we would like to amplify our commitment to being an organisation that promotes a social model of disability which includes:

  • Fostering an open, inclusive, and transparent culture
  • Improving awareness and understanding
  • Encouraging disclosure
  •  Improving support

We encourage colleagues, student societies, and clubs to align their events and activities with the above principles. Applications relating to neurodiversity are welcomed.

Funding will be awarded to host local events or activities to a maximum of £200.

Applications will be assessed according to the extent to which the proposed activity’s aims align with the recognition month themes and how broad the impact would be.

For guidance on how to run EDI events, please see our EDI events toolkit.
