Information for Needs Assessors and External Non-Medical Help Providers

Our Non-Medical Help (NMH) rates are available for both our NTU courses and our Confetti courses.

If you're recommending NTU as a provider during term time, please check the NMH Providers website to see if we are listed, as we will remove our support details from here when we are at capacity.

You can also see our information for external NMH providers regarding safeguarding and the provision of support on NTU premises.


If you would like to provide feedback on any aspect of our service, please speak with your adviser or contact the Team Leader at disability.support@ntu.ac.uk or on +44(0)115 848 2085. If you wish to make a complaint, information about the University’s complaints procedure and how to make a complaint can be found online.
