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. This representation is essential at all levels of the University to ensure a supportive and inclusive environment for all. As such, SwDA strides to develop relationships with key staff members in addition to engaging the student body.
