The NUS Disabled Students’ campaign conference is the largest gathering of disabled students and their representatives in the UK.

The annual conference enables disabled students to network and socialise together in a safe, secure environment. It also sets the policy, priorities and direction of the NUS Disabled Students’ campaign in a democratic environment. The conference holds the NUS disability representatives to account and elects new officers and committees to direct the work of the campaign over the year.

The event is free of charge for one disabled student representative from each Students’ Union in the UK. It is held at an accessible venue and this year will be from 1st to 3rd March 2010 in Manchester.

This year we are celebrating our 10th anniversary and the campaign is determined to double its participation. It is so important for the campaigns voice to get bigger and build on its successes in recent years. Therefore I urge you to register 1 delegate for free and maybe 1 or 2 observers (£250 each) so your union and your disabled students have a voice at national level and can learn about campaigns that they can bring back to your union.

Please note that the closing date for registration is the 12th February 2010 at 1pm.

Thank you so much for your support and please spread the word to anybody who you think will be interested in attending.
