The University is committed to creating a safe and thriving environment and our strategies, policies, procedures, guides and action plans are designed to uphold the values of equality, diversity and inclusivity.

These resources are routinely reviewed and any constructive feedback regarding these documents can be sent to [email protected].


There are several toolkits available to staff. They are designed to increase knowledge and support surrounding disability and inclusion and LGBTQ+, as examples. We also have toolkits to raise further awareness about Family origin, Ethnicity and Religion.

Guidance on Supporting Disabled People at Work focuses on potential reasonable adjustments in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 and is split into six sections:

• Talking about disability at work

• How an employer could support disabled people

• Managing a disability that gets worse over time

• Disability-related absences

• Capability and performance when someone is disabled

• More support for managing disability at work.
