Disability and Neurodiversity Action Plan

The University’s Disability and Neurodiversity Action Plan is based on the Disability Standard, a whole-organisation disability management audit developed by the Business Disability Forum. This helps organisations measure and improve on performance for disabled customers, clients or service users, employees, and stakeholders. 

As members of the Business Disability Forum, Surrey receives in-depth, tailored support via the Advice Service and Knowledge Hub.
