Guidance and information for disabled staff

The 四虎影院 is committed to supporting disabled staff and making all aspects of university life accessible.

The Equality Act 2010 says that 'a disabled person is someone with a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities'.

This definition is quite broad as the key thing is not the impairment but its effect. Some people don’t realise that impairments such as migraines, dyslexia, asthma and back pain can count as a disability if the adverse effect on the individual is substantial and long-term. So, the single term 'disability' is used to cover a range of physical and sensory impairments, medical conditions, specific learning difficulties and mental health needs.
