Event Synopsis

How much do you know about hidden disabilities, such as neuro diversity, mental health and conditions such as brain injury? What about the Equality Act, reasonable adjustments and how to access support?

In this seminar we will explore:

  • The wider scope of hidden disabilities
  • What are the talents and work challenges for those with such conditions
  • Accessing Work Support
  • What organisations can do
  • What individuals can do for themselves
  • The legal implications of hidden disabilities
  • The relevant parts of the Equality Act

There’ll be a few case studies to explore and plenty of opportunity for discussion and Q&A

Booked a place and can't attend

Non-Members: Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a refund in the event of you cancelling your place. If CIPD North Yorkshire cancel the event then a full refund will be made.

Members: We do reserve the right to charge a £10 no-show fee for those who are unable to attend who do not contact us with apologies (except in exceptional circumstances). 

All our branch events are organised by volunteers who give up their time freely to provide CPD opportunities for others in North Yorkshire, events are funded through branch funds, and our speakers (who at most receive expenses only) give up their time freely to prepare and present their sessions. With this in mind, if you do book on an event and find you’re no longer able to attend – please email and give your apologies to those involved with the event – we really do appreciate this, especially in advance where possible as this might allow us to avoid catering wastage, but if it’s an unavoidable last minute cancellation we’d still like to hear from you.
