Guidance on supporting disabled staff

Guidance for disabled staff and their managers.

The University values and benefits from a diverse workforce and is committed to removing barriers to employment for disabled people. We positively welcome job applications from disabled people and we provide services to support the needs of disabled staff.

The University aims to promote a culture where staff feel confident to disclose a disability, and disabled staff are supported to develop and perform to their full potential.

The Guidance below sets out the legislative context of disability in employment, the manager’s responsibilities, and the services available to provide additional support to disabled staff.
