Welcome to this year’s Disability Awareness Fortnight (DAF) campaign, coinciding with the UK’s national Disability History Month. This year’s campaign celebrates our student body’s diversity across hidden and visible disabilities such as neurodivergence, chronic illness, mobility, and others.
Our Disability Awareness Fortnight takes place from 1-14 December and is facilitated by our student-led organising committee. Members from across Queen Mary’s campuses have put together incredible content and events across three strands: panel discussions, social activities, and web content.
Take part in enthralling events including a winter holiday social with the Neurodivergent Society, a panel discussion between Queen Mary academics and postgraduate researchers highlighting their disability research, a braille-based treasure hunt, and more!
Explore our merch and our web content including fidget toys, student spotlights, and disability debunking Instagram posts. Come celebrate with us!
