Trinity Inclusive Student Life
The Inclusive Student Life Project (formerly the Towards Inclusive Clubs and Societies Project) aims to equip student organisations to become more inclusive to disabled students.
Phase 1 (2021-22)
The first phase of the project took place in 2021/2022. This involved the creation of a resource package including the following:
- A Checklist: for student bodies to establish how inclusive they are to disabled students and measure improvements.
- Guidelines: to break down how student bodies can become more inclusive into practical steps.
- Training videos: To introduce the key messages of the project.
Phase 2 (2022-Present)
The second phase of the project was to develop a training programme for student bodies to become more inclusive to disabled students. 10 student trainers go out to different Trinity student organisations and deliver a training session, or an informal workshop depending on preferences. If you would like to sign up for a workshop please complete the linked form.

Highlighting good practice
Since the beginning of this project we have worked with lots of great student organisations who shared our appetite for change. Check out these podcast episodes to find out more!
An Cumann Gaelach was the first winner of the Disability Inclusion Award at the CSC Society of the Year Awards 2022!
Both phases of this project have been funded by the TCD Association & Trust. As an independent, student-led activist group we are very thankful for their continued financial support that allows us to work on projects like this one.
One of the main sources of funding for the TCD Association & Trust grants comes from the TCD Affinity Credit Card. With over 10,000 cardholders to date, a percentage of the annual turnover on these cards is donated back to Trinity by Bank of Ireland.
