Self-organised groups

Please note that this page has been 'dormant' for a while - we will update it soon.



We currently have two self-organised groups:

Disabled Members' Group

LGBT Group

 Disabled Members’ Group

The Disabled Members’ Group welcomes any self-identifying disabled members  - including anyone with a physical or sensory impairment, mental health condition and/or long-term health condition.

The group is an opportunity to chat to others about your experiences, as well as campaigning to make the university a better place for disabled people to work. Some of the issues we have been discussing are:

  • Training for managers
  • Long-term sick pay for support staff
  • Disability-related leave
  • Guaranteed interview scheme

We have termly meetings, as well as a mailing list for email communication. The next meeting will take place in September 2015, exact date and location tbc. For more information, please contact Vera Kubenz on

 LGBT Group

A survey regarding the brand-new LGBT group was sent to members by email and the date for the first meeting will be announced shortly.

If you missed the survey and would like more information about the group, or to get involved, contact Claire McHale on


We are also hoping to organise a Women's group and a Black Members group, please get in touch if you would like to get involved!
