As an employer, the College is both committed and legally obliged under the Equality Act 2010 to make reasonable adjustments to enable disabled staff to carry out their duties successfully.

The overall aim should be, as far as possible, to remove or reduce any disadvantage faced by a disabled member of staff.  

Staff requiring an adjustment to their work location to accommodate a need arising from disability should refer to the Workplace Adjustments process.

Line managers are responsible for considering requests for workplace adjustments and for ensuring that appropriate reasonable adjustments are put in place, as soon as reasonably possible. 

The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Centre (EDIC) and Occupational Health can provide advice and are able to support discussions around workplace adjustments.
