Setting the Scene

Project funding

Since 1993/4 the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) have had a series of disability-focused special initiatives to encourage HEIs to make better provision for students with disabilities. The project, on which this guide is based, is one of 50 funded in the fourth initiative, worth £6m, on Improving Provision for Disabled Students Funding Programme; although it is the only one of the projects which takes a discipline-based approach to disability issues.
