Professor Anna Lawson, Director of @CDSLeeds, honours NADSN by becoming our FIRST Patron!

NADSN (@nadsn_uk) is thrilled to announce that the wonderful Professor Anna Lawson has accepted the Steering Committee’s recent invitation to take on a brand new role as the first Patron of NADSN!

Anna is professor of Law and Director of the Centre for Disability Studies (@CDSLeeds) at the University of Leeds. Anna was our esteemed keynote speaker at this year’s NADSN Annual Conference at UCL and recorded a powerful VLOG in support of #PurpleLightUp as our senior champion!

Our Terms of Reference stipulate that our Patron will be well-known and respected in the disability field. Anna’s tireless campaigning on disability rights, the respect she has earned as an eminent academic and lawyer on the international stage, being the director of a world-class university centre on disability studies, and being an influential leader with lived experience, are just some of the qualities that make Anna the ideal candidate as our Patron. You can find out more about Anna on her profile page here.

We envisage that the role of the Patron would be to promote the aims of NADSN, provide credibility to our cause, raise awareness of the Association with people where it will count, offer guidance to the Chair and the Steering Committee, and be prepared to support occasional ‘high profile’ events.

We are deeply honoured that Anna has taken on this role and we very much look forward to working with her.
