The Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) was launched in 2019 and aims to improve the workplace and career experiences of disabled colleagues in the NHS.
Our WDES annual report guide has been designed to help NHS trusts and foundation trusts develop their WDES annual report and action plan. Reports must be published on trust websites by 30 October 2020.
The WDES annual report template is intended to support the publishing process, but individual trusts may use their own template if they prefer.
For further support access our webinar recording for the developing your WDES annual report and action plans held on 9 September. The webinar provides an overview of this guide along with further good practice guidance.
Additional WDES resources include:
WDES quick guide to implementation
WDES online FAQs
WDES technical guidance
Managing reasonable adjustments in the workplace
An inclusive approach to disability leave
A guide to improving staff disability data
Visit the NHS Workforce Disability Equality Standard web page to access the WDES technical guidance and a suite of resources which can assist you with the implementation of the standard.
