As an organisation providing services to people with mental health problems we are particularly committed to ensuring that the protections of the Disability Discrimination (Amendment) Act 2005 in relation to mental illness as a disability are provided to users of our services. We will tackle discrimination not only in our own provision but also through our work on anti-stigma.
We will continue to make sure that people who use our services and have additional impairments (physical or sensory) or physical health conditions receive a service of equal quality to those who do not.
In employment, we actively promote a culture where the talents and experience of all disabled people are valued. We make every effort to ensure that we provide the support and adjustments that all employees and potential employees need to get into, stay in, and get on in employment with our Trust.
