Vote for a fellow disabled student if you want to have an energetic, prosperous year as a DAS member! I will carry this out through ensuring we live up to our four aims!

As an Epileptic and Autistic with ABI music student, I will ensure we live up to our aims of:

  • CAMPAIGNING
  • VOLUNTEERING
  • spreading AWARENESS, and
  • providing SUPPORT

I will carry these out through: 

  • Connecting with a (Central or Zone 1) London Disability Charity 

 

  • Hosting Regular events (min. every month) which are accessible for all:
    • Themes of events can be based on actionable support methods

 

  • Connecting with inspiring disabled speakers

 

  • Using social media and virtual platforms to spread awareness and campaign

 

  • Working with other societies in a collaborative manner (e.g., sports or music) 

An example of an external disability music body we can connect with is the National Open Youth Orchestra. Here's an uplifting clip of them playing Alexander Campkin's "What Fear We Then?"

  

All of these will bring forth an energetic, prosperous year which the Wellbeing Officer and I will ensure is not overwhelming.
