Lucy Dixon, our Regional Campaigns Manager, has challenged Manchester City Council’s recent proposals to cut services for blind and partially sighted children, at a meeting with parents and other stakeholders on Wednesday 13 July.
The Government has suggested changes to the way Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) is awarded, they want Higher Education providers to be responsible for providing more support directly. We are concerned that some blind and partially sighted students may not receive the level or quality of support that they need.
One of our Yorkshire and Humber volunteer campaigners is campaigning to save specialist courses for blind and partially sighted students at Hull College.
Parents of children and young people with sensory loss in Cambridgeshire are celebrating after the Council voted to retain a countywide sensory team.
You may have heard that the Government are making changes to Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA). We would like to hear from you if you are currently receiving DSA funded support or if you have done so in the past.
