We're in the business of empowering students

We work with students who experience significant and long-term impacts from a disability, mental health condition, specific learning difficulty, or neurodivergence. 

Through one-to-one meetings with your specialist support worker, you’ll explore ways to address whatever gets in the way of demonstrating what you know and can do in your studies.  Support will be bespoke to you: everyone has different needs that arise from their strengths and what they find difficult, and your specialist support worker will help you to access your studies in a way where your needs are met.      

We provide two types of support: Specialist Study Skills and Specialist Mentoring. Both types of specialist support are designed to promote equality of access by empowering students. 

Specialist Mentor Support

Specialist mentor support will help you develop strategies to manage a range of difficulties that may affect your learning.

These difficulties may arise in relation to a mental health condition, being autistic, or a long-term health condition.

Your specialist support worker may help you with time management and planning, coping with stressful situations and managing concentration difficulties.

Specialist Study Skills Support

Specialist study skills support will help you address difficulties that you may have with processing and retaining information. 

These difficulties may arise in relation to a neurodivergence such as a specific learning difficulty (dyslexia and dyspraxia), ADHD or autism. 

Your specialist support worker will focus on helping you to develop your academic skills and strategies, such as how to improve your assignments, writing technique and research skills.

Arranging your support is simple

If your support is funded through DSA from your student funding body​

If you have a letter of entitlement (also called a DSA2 award letter) that names Mulberry Education, please send a copy of it to us.

It also helps if you send us a copy of your Needs Assessment Report too. If you only have a paper copy, you can send us a scan or a clear photo of each page.

We will then contact you to arrange your support. Please look out for emails from us.

If your support is funded by your university or college​

Let us know where you're studying and what course you're on.

We will then contact you to arrange your support. Please look out for emails from us.

The support Mulberry Education provides is usually funded through Disabled Student Allowances (DSA) if you are a Higher Education student, or through the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) if you are an apprentice.  Universities or colleges can also fund the support for students who are not eligible for other funding.

If you would like to know more about whether you are eligible for DSA- or ESFA-funded support, it’s best to speak with your Disability Advisors at your place of study.

They will be able to tell you what sort of help is available and how you can access it.
