Arranging delivery of your equipment
When you have received a letter from your funding body detailing the support, and equipment approved for your use, it is important to make arrangements to receive them as soon as possible.
You will receive details on how to do this on the letter sent to you by the funding body. Please contact the required suppliers and let them know you have approval from your funding body, and they will provide all the support you need to carry out the process.
It is important to note that you should receive your equipment less than 10 working days after providing confirmation of funding body approval.
Any questions concerning the organisations who supply Disabled Students Allowances (DSA) funded equipment, should be directed at your funding body.
