UK Disability History Month 2023 (UKDHM) runs from 16 November to 16 December 2023.
UKDHM began in 2016 and it is an annual event focused on the history of disabled people’s fight for equality and human rights.
This Autumn 2023 UKDHM focusses on the Experience of Disablement amongst children and young people in the past, now and what is needed for the future. UKDHM comes from a Social Model/Human Rights approach, so that all children and young people with long term impairment will not experience the social exclusion of stigma, stereotypes, negative attitudes and socially created barriers in the environment and the way things are organised.
For UKDHM we have curated a collection of LinkedIn Learning content which you can watch for free with your University of Leeds account:
- Course: Supporting Workers with Disabilities
- Course: Inclusion and Equity for Workers with Disabilities
- Course: Digital Accessibility for the Modern Workplace
- Collection: Accessibility as part of our Digital Essentials for Staff Training
- Collection: Supporting Disabled Students
If you’ve not accessed your LinkedIn Learning account before, you can find out more about it on our LinkedIn Learning pages. You can easily access your account from the LinkedIn Learning login page using your normal University username and password.
You can find out more about UKDHM on their website and watch a recorded presentation about valuing difference.
