Understanding disability infographic

02 / 12 / 2020

There are many misconceptions around disability and this infographic aims to educate and improve understanding. It provides an explanation of what a disability is, some of the associated health conditions and key statistics.

This infographic also includes a list of actions for organisations and managers which can help address some of the barriers that disabled staff may experience in the workplace.

All NHS organisations are required to demonstrate how they are addressing disability issues by publishing their annual Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) report and action plan.

Organisations are encouraged to share this infographic internally and run an awareness campaign, prompting staff to record their disability on ESR and to have an open conversation with their manager.

If you require further information on supporting staff with disabilities in the workplace visit our WDES resource library.
