Disability employment and engagement

We're waiting for Sara Weller to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Department of Health and Social Care,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
I request information in relation to disability inclusion in your department as below.
I confirm that I am an individual seeking information in order to raise understanding of how Government Departments and other public bodies are supporting disabled people to enter and be retained in the workplace.
In all cases I request information for the most recent full year for which the information is available.
i) The number and % of disabled* people you employ
ii) The number and % of senior leaders with a disability* that you employ. Include how you define “senior leaders”
iii) The number and ‘engagement’ of staff self-reporting as having a disability in your latest all-staff engagement survey**
iv) The number and ‘engagement’ of staff self-reporting as not having a disability in your latest all-staff engagement survey**
v) How many ‘reasonable adjustments’ (as defined in the Equality Act 2010) were requested and provided in the last full year for which data is available
• * For statistics relating to Disabled/Disability please use the Equality Act 2010 definition of disability or, if you use a different definition, please include in your response the definition of disability that you use.
• ** For all-staff ‘engagement’, please use the measure of engagement from the annual Civil Service staff survey, or if you use a different survey in your response, please explain the survey you use
If your department does not hold all of this information, please provide the information that you do hold in relation to the representation of disabled people in your department.
I look forward to receiving this information in the next 20 days.
Yours faithfully,
Sara Weller CBE
