The Disabilities officer works to represent all students who have a physical disability here at Leeds Trinity University. They will work on a variety of projects but may also collaborate closely with the Mental Health officer on work that affects people with both visible and invisible disabilities.
Hi, my name is Chloe!
I am in my final year of studying Psychology and Child Development and this year I am your Disabilities Officer.
My experience of disability advocacy and campaigning is what initially made me want to take on this role. I have mild Cerebral Palsy which causes my movements to be wobbly, uncoordinated and unbalanced. This is because my muscles don’t work the way they should and are normally too tight. I also am registered as partially sighted meaning I have reduced peripheral vision as well as things being very out of focus.
In my spare time I love writing my blog, freelancing and working with charities like Scope, RNIB and CP Teens UK. I have a particular interest in photography which may be ironic when you’re partially sighted but I love it.
Take time out to have a break and enjoy yourself. I would definitely recommend not leaving things to the last minute and be organised when it comes to university work.
At Leeds Trinity there are a lot of things you can get involved with and I would highly recommend you do so, even if that’s just watching a film.
If you see me around university and have a question then please do not hesitate to come over and have a chat!
