Essex Access Forum

The EAF was founded in 2007 as a discussion forum and consultation body working to support excellence in all aspects of physical and non-physical access at Essex (student education, staff employment and visitor experience).

Who we are

EAF members come from across our University (Colchester, Southend and Loughton) and have diverse roles, but a share a common interest in access, disability and inclusion issues. Membership is completely open with both staff and students - disabled and non-disabled - members welcome. EAF acts principally as an email-based discussion and dissemination platform, although we also meet once-termly, and are represented on the Project Steering Groups for all major capital builds.

The Forum is supported by Bryn Morris, Registrar, who is the University’s Diversity Champion for Disability.

What we do

We are involved and contribute to a wide range of areas on access at Essex:

  • we share thinking and promote informal debate
  • contribute to planning and problem-solving of our University's physical environment
  • assist in developing our University's policy and practical responses to legislation and guidance
