Some feedback from university staff and students who attended the workshops reflecting on some of their learning:
I thought it was wonderful that you had a wide array of perspectives and most importantly, the fact it was deaf-led and so inclusive”
The feedback and discussions were productive and many of them I would have not considered, so this was very important. “
Statistics and results of studies will be helpful to take to management.”
The lack of preparation and policy in universities to ensure all students have the same access to education.”

Best practice workshops!
We have recruited some of our deaf students as consultants to help us to co-produce best practice workshops to be delivered to universities across the UK. We are paying the consultants £150 in vouchers for each workshop they deliver.
