Join us from 9am until 11am at Glenside Students' Union for a free hot breakfast, friendly chats, and support information. These Disabled Action events are open to all students identifying as disabled (including mental health difficulties, Specific Learning Disabilities, and chronic illness), as well as allies looking for an inclusive space – everyone’s welcome!
Our Disabled Students' Officer, as well as staff from UWE Library and the SpLD Support service, will be present to give casual advice and support. If you would like to keep in touch about future events and support for disabled students, please feel free to join our Mailing List.
Please note all of The Students' Union events are designed to be COVID secure and as accessible as possible with step free/wheelchair access, seating, quiet places, and vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free options and allergen information avaliable on request. If you have any other accessibilty questions or concerns, please feel free to email email@example.com and we'll be more than happy to help out.
4 October The Students' Union Frenchay Meeting Room 1
12 October The Students' Union Bower
We want our student community and staff to feel supported, confident and safe when running and attending events. We also want to be able to deliver a full programme of events and services throughout the academic year to enhance the student experience. This is why, in line with university policy, we are retaining some Covid-19 measures and will be asking attendees to either:
- Show evidence of a negative lateral flow test taken within 24 hours prior to the event and register the results here. Lateral flow tests are available for free online, at UWE info points, at The Students’ Union and in most pharmacies
- Show an NHS Covid Pass, that you can obtain if you have received a full course of vaccination (usually a double dose) OR if you have proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for Covid-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test. More information on how to get your NHS Covid Pass
This will apply to large-scale events (over 300 people), however, those attending smaller events will be subject to spot checks, so please be prepared.
We encourage you also to test again following the event.
