The DSA Claim It! Campaign
18 July 2018
This Campaign, from Disability Rights UK, offers advice and information about Disabled Students' Allowances (DSAs) and other university-led adjustments.
This is extra funding and support that can help university students with a wide range of disabilities and extra needs to achieve their full potential. The funding comes from the Government and doesn't have to be paid back - or your university may well be able to offer lots of extra help and support which doesn't require any funding at all.
Many people don't know about the extra support - or are worried about asking for help as they feel it may affect their career opportunities. This campaign provides an easy way to check whether you could be eligible and then links you through to relevant information and extra support.
It's estimated that in 2017 nearly half the people eligible for DSA did not make a claim.
