Disability Framework

Do you or one of your team have a disability or require a Temporary Reasonable Adjustment? If the answer is yes, then the Disability Framework can help you.

The Disability Framework is a guide on implementing workplace adjustments (also called reasonable adjustments). The guide has been produced to assist managers in supporting employees who declare a disability or illness and may require some adjustments to their working location or pattern.


Key Documents

Documents you will need to implement workplace adjustments:

If you need workplace adjustments, or are supporting a staff member who needs adjustments, and can't find what you need here, contact us and let us know.



It is important to note that staff are under no obligation to disclose the nature of their disability. However, disclosures can assist departments in offering effective workplace adjustments and any additional support required. As such, we encourage staff to disclose any disabilities or illnesses to the line manager and HR.


Duty to Provide Adjustments

You can read more about the duty to provide reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act on the Disability protected characteristic webpage.
