The Disability Officer represents all Newcastle University students who identify as having a Disability (i.e a physical disability, a psychological disability, a learning difficulty, mental illness, or other health condition which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to study). You will also coordinate the Students with Disabilities forum and run campaigns, events, marketing and any other activity necessary to address related issues raised by the students you are representing.
Hello everyone! I'm Amelia and my pronouns are she/her and I will be your Disability officer for the academic year of 2021/22. I study Politics and International relations and over the past year I have worked as an EDI rep for GPS & will be going into my second year in September. I've gone through a long educational journey doing an extra year of college & university last year but I'm so glad it has resulted in me being here! I'm very excited to work in collaboration with all the other NUSU officers to make education more accessible.
