Your Academic Experience Officer Meg Darroch has put together a resource bank to compliment the #DoItMyWay Toolkit!
Back in October 2021, your Academic Experience Officer Meg Darroch launched #DoItMyWay, an accessibility toolkit designed to help disabled students advocate for themselves within the students’ union, and get the help and adjustments from the SU that they need to thrive.
In addition to the #DoItMyWay toolkit, Meg has also put together a list of resources that she finds helpful in various different areas of day to day life, and thinks they’ll be helpful for you too. Whether you’re looking for resources regarding employment, education, or everyday life check out the links below!
Regardless of any physical or mental disabilities or conditions, everyone has the right to work, and deserves adjustments that help them to thrive in the workplace.

If you have a disability or long-term health condition, this shouldn’t hold you back in your education experience.

Take a look at the links below to find out how to access reasonable adjustments in your learning environment, as well as some useful tips and life hacks from fellow students about navigating education as a disabled student!
For those of us with disabilities or long-term health conditions, we know that life looks and is experienced differently to those without.

Below are some links for tips and hacks that might help you with day-to-day life with a disability, and to help others with understanding the importance of disability inclusivity, and planning accessible events.
