University of York Students' Union (YUSU)


Disability Sport Activator

Posted by Thomas Ron, 22/08/2013

Hello all,

I hope everyone is having a good summer.  As those who read my blogs will know YUSU is taking a special interest in disability sport.  We have created a voluntary position of Disability Sport Activator.  I strongly urge anyone interested in the post to step forward and take this important role.

In order for our initiative to succeed we need strong communication between the Disabled Students' Network and the Sport Committee, which is why this post was created.  Since all officers have many other tasks, we need this to be a separate person.

Disability Sport is a process that will lead to more people leading healthier and more inclusive lives and it will enrich the university as well as improving diversity.  Therefore, if you are interested, regardless of whether you self-define as disabled, please get involved and apply for this post, where you will be in the front-line of our efforts.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at
