Disability and Wellbeing Network

The Disability and Wellbeing Network (DAWN) supports disabled staff who work at the University by providing staff with a space to talk openly about disability, and to work with the University to ensure disabled voices are heard.

What we do

The Disability and Wellbeing Network provides the following:

  • Social events to get to know other disabled staff throughout the University.
  • Work with HR and other services, through the Co-Chairs, to contribute to the development of policies and practices to ensure that disabled staff receive all necessary support and have a positive experience.
  • Campaigns to highlight disability and to champion the successes of disabled staff.

How do I join?

The Disability and Wellbeing Network uses the social model of disability and any member of staff who identifies as disabled or chronically ill can join.
