It's true that when a disabled person feels valued within an organisation, they are likely to remain for a long period of time, take less sick days and be more productive. However, in order for this to be a reality, a disabled employee must feel welcome within your organisation. Whilst some barriers such as physical access can be obvious for some people to see, many of the other barriers are subtle. These barriers can include:
- Bias held by employees

The Difference Between Disability Awareness, Inclusion & Equality
What is awareness
Awareness relates to the developing knowledge that disabled people are everywhere. It also helps us to understand the barriers that are faced by disabled people
What is inclusion
Inclusion builds on awareness and the knowledge that disabled people are everywhere. It takes what we know about the barriers that surround disabled people and explores why the barriers are there in the first place. It then looks at how we can overcome these barriers and what solutions can be put in place so that disabled people can be active members of the world around them
What is equality
Equality is about ensuring that disabled people have equal access to everything non-disabled people have access to and that disability is never a barrier to involvement and inclusion
