Who is Change 100 for?

Change 100 is for talented students and graduates with disabilities or long-term conditions — including physical, visual or hearing impairments, mental health conditions and learning disabilities and difficulties like dyslexia and dyspraxia.

I believe that the Change 100 may be one of the most important steps I have taken since I was accepted into University. I have been welcomed into a workforce that is accepting and understanding of my disability.
