Disabled Staff Network

The Disabled Staff Network is open to all staff members at Northumbria University who self-identify as having a disability, an impairment, cognitive difference, or long-term health/ medical condition, and/or those with an interest in disability issues (professional or otherwise).

The group is dedicated to giving members a safe space where they can openly share their concerns, fears, and experiences related to disability and provide each other with moral support and practical advice. The network encourages members to share information and best practice with teams, colleagues, and the University to improve the experiences of disabled staff and to promote positive attitudes towards disabled people and raise awareness of disability equality.

The group meets regularly throughout the year for informal catch ups.

If would like to join the network, please visit the Staff Equality Networks page on the intranet (login required) or contact the EDI team
