Please have a read of the wonderful research that has just been release by Scope:

“Let’s Talk looks at disabled people’s experiences of talking about their impairment or condition at work.

Our research found that many disabled people struggle to share information about their impairment or condition in the workplace. This can make it harder for disabled people to access the support and adjustments they need to carry out their job.

Key findings:

  • Nearly half of disabled people (48 per cent) have worried about sharing information about their impairment or condition with an employer.

  • Only half of disabled people we surveyed (49 per cent) are aware of their rights as a disabled employee.

  • Several disabled people said they experienced negative comments from talking about their impairment or condition at work.

  • Some disabled people who had positive experiences said this helped them to get the support they needed.

We’re calling on employers to create inclusive workplaces where disabled people can be themselves and share information about their impairment or condition on their own terms.

We’re also calling on the Government to improve information and resources for employers and ensure disabled people can access the right support whilst in work.”
