Manifesto summary: 

As a wheelchair user, I understand how a disability can shape one’s experiences of university. I have lots of innovative ideas to help to make everybody’s time at UCL as enjoyable as possible as well as institute beneficial change for my peers.

My primary concern is the ongoing issue of access in UCL’s libraries, cafes and academic departments. UCL still has a wide number of heavy doors which makes life very difficult for those with mobility problems. Crucially, automatic doors aren’t maintained well, as the Disabled Students’ Network officer, I will aim to clarify the procedure which highlights access issues, as well as repair this currently poor process. I will also communicate regularly with Student Disability Services.

I will also tackle ableism by reviving the Try It! Campaign, as well as continuing raising awareness of ableist language and making Disabled History month more prominent. I would also implement a ‘careers day’ in which disabled people talk to students about working in specific careers with disabilities. I also would like to start taster days for a variety of support for disabled people
