Consultation response: Disabled Students’ Allowance
Engage to Change partners responded to a Welsh Government consultation on changes to the Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA).
In our response we emphasised the importance of person-centred, continuous support for disabled students. Higher and Further Education can be challenging environments for people with a learning disability and/or autism. DSA should also be adjusted to how support needs might change over the duration of a student’s course. For example, support needs may change when students do internships.

Welsh Government has now collected the responses to the consultation. You can find the results on the Welsh Government homepage. The results can be found in English, Welsh, Easy Read English and Easy Read Welsh.
