The creation of a YUSU Disabilities Committee was one of the motions discussed at last Thursday’s UGM. If passed, the new committee’s roles will be to “promote Disability campaigns” and to “represent the Disabilities movement on campus”.
The committee’s creation should improve welfare support for disabled students. Ben Humphrys, YUSU Welfare Officer, said: “This would be a massive step for disabled people on campus.
There’s a lot of progress being made at University level on disability issues and having a disability committee only strengthens the student voice in this progress.” Voting closes tomorrow.
