In their words:

“Around 19 per cent* of the population have a disability or health condition. Many of these will be unseen, such as epilepsy and mental health conditions. This means you might not
realise someone is disabled.

that you respect people regardless of their background or ability.

Don’t avoid people with disabilities or health conditions because you are worried about saying the wrong thing.”
