Disability co-ordinators

Disability co-ordinators

Disability co-ordinators are located in each academic school. Some schools have one member of staff who carries out this role, others have disability co-ordinators in each department. They ensure that confidential information about your disability and the recommended academic support is passed on to appropriate members of staff.

You may find them a useful first point of contact within the school if an issue arises with your support. They provide an invaluable link between the academic school and the Disability Support Service.
