The Students with Disabilities Association (SwDA) exists to provide representation and support for members of Durham University who identify as having a disability. SwDA is a completely student-led group framed within Durham Student Union, with the assistance of the Community Officer.

The aims of the Association are to represent and support students who identify as having a disability throughout the greater student community, regardless of whether they have disclosed that disability.
