Keble College - new disability equality scheme

Tuesday 19 December 2006

What is a Disability Equality Scheme? We are required under the law to develop a written scheme and action plan which will explain how we can help disabled people who are involved in any way with the College, and how we will promote awareness of this duty. Our Scheme is currently in draft, and we have already issued and analysed questionnaires sent to all students and staff. However, to be as effective as possible we wish to take account of the views of any other members, staff, visitors or others with or without disabilities, as part of an on-going engagement with the whole College community.

We should be very pleased to receive comments and suggestions on the following:

a) What does the College do well in terms of supporting students, staff and visitors with disabilities? b) What policies, procedures or practices are barriers to disabled people? c) How could the College remove these barriers?

Please send your comments and suggestions to: Trish Long, Keble College, Oxford, OX1 3PG. Tel: +44 (0)1865 272700, or email: trish.long@keble.ox.ac.uk

If you wish to give your feedback anonymously, it would be useful if you could please state the following: your relationship to the College; and whether you are disabled (according to the definition under the Disability Discrimination Act, this means that you have a physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term impact on your ability to carry out day-to-day activities).
