Equipment for disabled students and arranging support

When you received your Study Needs Assessment report it will include details of the assessor's recommendations and recommended suppliers. Your funding body will confirm what you are entitled to. If your application is successful then you may be entitled to one or more of the following:

Specialist equipment

The letter will confirm which Approved Supplier you must contact to order your specialist equipment. Their contact details should be in the letter. If not, these can be found in the Study Needs Assessment report. Please contact the supplier direct, quoting the reference number on the letter to arrange delivery.

Is insurance included in the letter? If so, arrange insurance and submit the receipts to your funding body (for Student Finance England, download the claim for costs form from the Government website).

Non-medical helper’s allowance

If IT training has been recommended, please contact the supplier to arrange training for after the delivery of your equipment.

If tuition, mentoring or other human support has been recommended please contact the supplier directly or contact your Student Services Hub and we can help arrange this.

General allowance

Send your receipts for general allowance items agreed by your funding body (for Student Finance England, download the claim for costs form from the Government website). We recommend you keep copies of these receipts. Claims should be sent before the start of the next academic year.

Travel and accommodation

Please follow the instructions on the letter from your funder or contact us if you have any questions.
