Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre


Your recommended funded support package may include provision for 1:1 human support, which is provided by Non-Medical Helpers.

The Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre can provide the following types of Non-Medical Help (NMH) for disabled students:

  • Manual Note-taking
  • Library Assistance
  • Practical Support Assistance
  • Laboratory Assistance
  • Proofreading
  • Examination Support (Amanuensis or Reader)
  • Specialist Transcription
  • Mobility Training
  • Specialist Mentoring
  • Specialist 1:1 Study Skills Support

Your Disability Adviser will ask the Disability Support Co-ordinator to arrange the support for you. You will be matched to a suitable NMH and they will contact you via email.

We ask all students in receipt of NMH support from the ADRC to read the Student Code of Participation, which is designed to give you an understanding of your responsibilities when it comes to your support.

Non-Medical Helpers (NMHs) are paid via an electronic timesheet system called Connect. Students need to approve their timesheets on a weekly basis via Connect. More information on verifying timesheets via Connect can be found on the Electronic Timesheets page.

If you would like to access any of these types of support and do not have funding, then please contact your Disability Adviser to discuss your options.
