Interpretation of Disability
Samantha Kerr made this Freedom of Information request to Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service
Dear Children and Family Court Advisory Support Service,
1. When a FCA knows an application has a “medical condition” (as stated on C100) does the FCA understand that under the Equalities Act 2010 that a mental or physical impairment/condition constitutes a disability?
2. Under what policy or procedure would Cafcass ‘not’ consider a medical condition a disability?
