UK Disability History Month (UKDHM) is an annual event focusing on the history of the struggle for equality and human rights for people with disabilities. The theme is Access: How far have we come? How far have we to go?

We want to make sure UCA is a space where everyone, disabled (including mental health) or able, can receive the same opportunities. We would love to hear from some of you about your experiences at UCA regarding your disability so we can improve the services available.

In the meantime, make sure to check back on this page, and on our social media channels for our schedule of Disability History Month events!
