Event details

Disability can be a sensitive topic. Fear of saying the wrong thing often prevents people from saying anything at all which can cause us to avoid having important conversations.

Hosted by the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment, this is an open forum to provide an opportunity to talk about disability, share stories and ask questions without judgement.

This event is open to everyone, all staff, students, and external guests. It will be held on Microsoft Teams, beginning with short presentations from our guest speakers, followed by a Q&A session.

Come along and share your story and pick up some tried and tested tips for looking after your wellbeing.
