Creating inclusive environments in education & employment for people with disabilities.


AHEAD are delighted to release their annual report for 2021 which details the organisations activities and finances during that period.

The report reflects AHEAD's investment in engaging with networks across further and higher education and across the public and private employment sectors in order to sustain and develop the organisation and achieve our mission. We are particularly proud of our continued success in community building with students with disabilities, and the continued development of the Students with Disabilities Advisory Group as a key influencer in our output and our policy work. We hope you enjoy reading about our work.
