Disabled Students - a Cut Too Far. Sign my petition here.

On April 7th the Coalition announced in the name of 'modernisation' that they would be cutting Government Funding for the 53,000 full-time undergraduate higher education students that are receiving the Disabled Students Allowance.

The government intend to restrict those eligible to receive laptops and computers. Non-medical support like note-taking will no longer be covered under DSA. This will shift greater responsibility on to institutions which have already suffered huge cuts at the hands of the Coalition and have had a failed student funding model imposed on them.

I am totally opposed to this cut to disabled students and I have signed up to the campaign at Leeds Metropolitan University Students Union 

Disabled People have already been unfairly targeted by this Coalition Government  - bearing the brunt of the Bedroom Tax and work capability assessments. This is a cut too far.

Join me in your opposition to the cut to Disability Student Allowance by signing up to my petition – here.
