AHEAD: Association for Higher Education Access & Disability
Creating inclusive environments in education & employment for people with disabilities.


Clubs, Societies and Other Student Organisations within a university environment play a crucial role in the vibrancy and life of the institution. They provide opportunities for students to meet like-minded peers, offer outlets for creativity and growth, and build structures for interaction and community. Getting involved in extra-curricular life in your college can significantly enhance your employability as well. Within this context, disabled students need a safe and accessible space for them to meet and grow with students who can accept them for who they are, celebrate their interests and preferences, and provide a platform to explore new avenues.

We are delighted to share, with permission from the DCU Neurodivergent Society, a practical guide to setting up a Neurodivergent Society.
