About Us

Welcome all!

Here within the 'Disability, Diversity and Equality Society (DDESoc)', we aim to create a warm and welcoming environment for abled-bodied and disabled students alike - everyone is welcome! 

What's planned for this year?

Well, we've been extremely busy trying to jam pack this year with incredible activites and opportunities for our lovely members. Here's what the expect from us:

  • Talks from organisations within the disability community!
  • Promotion and raised awareness of Disability, Diversity and Equality!
  • Awesome collaborations with Northumbria University and third party agencies!
  • Socials (a mixture of alcohol and alcohol free) to give our lovely members a great time and a safe and friendly environment in which to engage with the local areas and meet like-minded people such as yourselves!
  • The chance to voice your opinions about places you've visited as part of our 'Disability Friendly Review'!
  • The chance to have your questions answered via our fortnightly radio show (link above)!

This society is completely run by students who are passionate about diversity and making Northumbria University the most socially diverse and inclusive community - so be rest assured that we will support and guide you to the best of our ability!
