Disability History Month

Disability History Month 2021

18th November - 18th December

UK Disability History Month (UKDHM) is an annual event creating a platform to focus on the history of disabled people's struggle for equality and human rights. The joint themes for UKDHM 2021 are Disability and Hidden Impairment and Disability, Sex and Relationships.

Disability History Month is a chance to look back at Disability History and the struggle for inclusion. As well as being time to raise awareness of issues, events and concerns that face the disabled community today. This year the University of Wolverhampton will present a number of events, provocations and talks which will be available for all students, staff and the public to attend for FREE online. 

This month the University of Wolverhampton will also commit to expanding awareness of disability concerns through a programme of events and celebrations – beyond December and throughout the entire academic calendar – to ensure we are a university of opportunity for everyone. We also hope that out public events will reach beyond the campus and to the wider public.
