Disability History Month

Disability History Month 2023

16th November - 16th December

Throughout this year’s Disability History Month (16 November – 16 December), the University of Wolverhampton will present a series of FREE online events (see below for details) – available for all students, staff and the public to attend – designed to help us all become more aware of the issues people with disabilities face. 

This is an opportunity to celebrate our achievements and learn from each other’s experiences as we lay the foundations for a more inclusive future – a future that includes everyone.

Disability needs to matter to everyone, because disability is everybody’s business! 

A better world for people with disabilities is a better world for everyone.
