What do you mean by disability?

Question:
What do you mean by disability?
Answer:

You are disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long term’ negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activity.

Many people who don’t think of themselves as disabled can access support from our office/service – unseen medical or mental health conditions are included, and so are Specific Learning Differences like dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD.
