Disability and additional needs support

The University is committed to ensuring all staff are treated fairly and that staff with disabilities receive the level of support that is right for them, such as providing specialist equipment or making changes to the physical environment to enable them to carry out their duties.

If you think you may need this type of support or are unsure and would like to talk to someone about this please contact our Employee Disability Service via the Wellbeing Services page.

Please note that as changes/adjustments may take time to consider and implement, you are encouraged to provide as much notice as possible to allow us to take any necessary action prior to your start date.

The nature of your disability may remain confidential but the impact of your disability/any adjustments required in order to accommodate your disability may need to be disclosed to your manager/supervisor.
