We are aware that many prospective employees may be reluctant to declare disability because of possible discrimination against them by employers. We have a positive policy on the employment of people with disabilities. An individual must decide for themselves and declare whether or not they are disabled using the definition provided by the Equality Act (2010). This defines disability as:
"a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on a person's ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities".
