On Monday 6th October, the National Union of Students launched their manifesto for the 2015 general election. The ‘New Deal for the Next Generation’ manifesto includes a pledge to preserve Disabled Students’ Allowances as one of their 10 education priorities:
- We want government to protect and improve the Disabled Students Allowance
The manifesto as a whole outlines three key areas of concern to students: Education, Work and Community, with ten policy ‘asks’ under each area. Local students’ unions will select the policy asks that matter most to them in order to customise their general election campaign leading up to 7 May 2015.
