Preston and Lancaster students are being urged to step forward to help with a charity’s research.
Action for ME (myalgic encephalopathy), which is also known as chronic fatigue syndrome, is supporting a project to investigate how universities can better support disabled people into employment ensure they advance disability equality.
The Equalities Challenge Unit (ECU) wants to work with disabled people, including those with ME, on a project funded by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) and the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills.
They are initially looking for students and graduates across a range of courses who have an interest in advancing disability equality to join an advisory group.
The group will help shape the scope of the research and provide advice on the methodology and findings.
