Please excuse my ignorance as I'm not very familiar with this area and I can
see from the archives that there are some veritable experts out there!
We currently have one part-time member of staff who does a lot of work
supporting students with disabilities. Recent evidence would seem to suggest
that this is a growing area as there appear to be more and more students who
declare a disability when they enrol and who are then directed to us for help
using the library. We were therefore wondering whether there are any
organisations or charities to whom we could possibly apply for funding in order
to employ a second person to help in this area of work. If anyone knows of
any such organisation that might be prepared to fund a new position could
you please let me know? Any help you could offer would be gratefully received.
