Niamh Barnes

Accessibility Officer

Niamh Barnes - she/her

What course are you studying?

I am in my third and final year of my Law degree.

What inspired you to become a PTO?

I wanted to make an impact on the students of the university. I wanted to help improve their experience studying and living as a student of the University of Leicester. As a disabled person, I have been through the anxiety, stress and frustration of finding people to talk to about my accessibility needs. Thus, I have my own idea of what such an Accessibility Officer should be like.

What’s the most important thing you’d like to change this year?

I want to promote awareness of accessibility barriers - not just ones due to COVID-19 - and I want to push the boundaries/raise the status of PTOs so that all our work is recognised.
