Hello and welcome to the 'Students with Disabilities' society!
As a society, we want to create a community where students with disabilities can meet others and share their stories. We want to continue raising awareness about disabilities and the impact they have on students. And we want to make sure students with disabilities feel seen, heard, and supported.
As well as having a strong online presence, we will host events regularly throughout the year. Each event will give you the opportunity to get to know other students and have some well deserved fun. Some people can find the idea of joining a society very overwhelming, which is why our events will always be activity-focused. Don't worry, we won't just get you all into a room and tell you to make friends!
Although we are called 'Students with Disabilities', we will never ask you to disclose your disability to us. If you don't have any formal diagnosis, but like the sound of our events and how we run them, then please feel free to join.
We will often refer to ourselves as 'SWD' instead of 'Students with Disabilities'.
Sound good? Join our WhatsApp group here to join our small and friendly community, and you can buy a membership on the right-hand bar.
Disability in Research - SWD and Disability Awareness Fortnight
Wed 6th December from 3pm to 5pm - G.O. Jones LT or Online
We're proud to highlight the work that is being done by academics and research students at Queen Mary to improve understanding of disabilities, and to make the life of those with disabilities easier. We will have a range of fantastic speakers along to share their work and motivations. The online link will be available here or on our WhatsApp group closer to the time.
We already have lots of event ideas to help students meet and support each other - film nights, quiz nights, board game nights, bowling, talks, and many more. But we want our members to be at the heart of this society. We want to hear what type of events you would like to see us run, please let us know on our WhatsApp group!
