The Valuing Disabled Colleagues programme has set up a Central Workplace Adjustment Fund, briefings on access to work, anonymous monitoring, a workplace adjustment request procedure, guidance for managers, focus groups to review the impact of particular staff policies and a monthly bulletin for staff. UAL has a dedicated Disability, Access and Inclusion Specialist.
The programme has 3 aims:
To encourage more staff to tell the University about their impairments/health status and whether adjustments to the workplace are required, to ensure full access and inclusion.
To provide managers with guidance, resources and funding to help managers to co-ordinate and implement workplace adjustments.
To introduce procedures, systems and communications to enable the University to better monitor, anticipate and plan for the range of access requirements of disabled staff.
The University has a Disabled/Neurodiverse Staff Network (DSN). The DSN is a confidential supportive group which contributes initiatives on disability awareness and events, promotes disability equality, shares good practice and discusses important issues on a range of disability matters across the University
