What is disclosure?

The SU exists to represent its members and provide them with services, support and opportunities for development to enable them to maximise the benefits of their overall student experience.

Disclosure is where an individual can choose to optionally make personal individual information be seen. By disclosing you are informing us of any additional information which will allow us to understand how to best suit your individual needs.

(For example: wheelchair user, dyslexia, depression, long-term medical condition)

Why disclose?

Disclosure is a positive thing; once people are aware of an individual student need, provisions can be made to try to ensure that the right support can be made available.

The SU is committed to treating disclosure with sensitivity and enabling you to remain in control of the information you choose to disclose.

You have the right to Confidentiality and can consent to who can access this information.

Who can you disclose to?

This information will be shared with relevant SU staff members who oversee the activities you indicate on the form.

In addition, you have the option to disclose to relevant committee members of any student group you may be part of.

Sharing this information will help us give you the best possible student experience.

What happens next?

Once the disclosure form has been submitted the area manager will check through the information. It may be required that the area manager will need to contact you to discuss the information you have submitted further.

Depending on the information disclosed, discussion will take place on how an area or student group can support your needs now and in the future.

It is vital that you give feedback and confirm if the level of support you’re receiving is working or not. Feedback is invaluable and will allow us to adjust accordingly.

We strongly encourage you to let us know if you have any condition that affects your day to day life as it enables us to discuss these with you, agree and implement any support that you may require.
