Purpose of the Disability Policy
The Equality Act 2010 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'.
It includes a range of physical and mental impairments and conditions which affect many people in the population. A full explanation can be found at the Government website.
We aim to ensure that the Community, the workforce and potential applicants for posts are aware of our commitment to ensuring disabled people are given equal opportunities in the recruitment process, and where necessary positive action taken to support disabled people.
Applications are encouraged from disabled people and we will make every effort to accommodate people's needs in taking part in the recruitment process and in taking up an employment position.
