Disabled Students Allowance
- From 2003 to 2006, UMHAN members were involved in the DfES Working Group on Disabled Students Allowances and contributed to the recognition of the applicability of this allowance to people with mental health difficulties.
- In 2005, members were also asked by SKILL to write a section on the kinds of support relevant to this population, in SKILL's Disability Directory, for Local Education Authority Awards Officers who administer the allowance. SKILL's directory including the sections on student mental health difficulties can be downloaded in full here.
Bridging the Gap
- In 2010, UMHAN members made suggestions to Student Finance England regarding the "Bridging The Gap" student support guide for the Disabled Students Allowance. These suggestions can be viewed in full below or downloaded as a PDF document, here.
