LWD is committed to ensuring disabled people are treated fairly and well, are supported at work and able to carry out their role effectively. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 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’. This may include something you may not personally have considered to be a disability, or perhaps you simply did not wish to disclose as you considered it of little adverse impact on your daily life, eg: Epilepsy, Dyslexia, Mobility difficulties, Mental health illness, Arthritis, Diabetes, Heart disease, Hearing/visual impairment
To help us measure our recruitment policies and practices, we seek to record whether applicants for
employment have a disability of some form, no matter how significant. We would, therefore, be
grateful if you would complete the details below in line with our commitment to promoting this
aspect of diversity.
Providing information on your disability will in no way have a detrimental impact on your application
or the selection process; indeed, the short listing / selection panel will not have these details unless
you ask that we make an adjustment for your interview.
