*The Equality Act (‘the Act’) 2010 definition

A person has a disability if they have a physical or mental impairment, and the impairment has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.


The definition requires that the effects that an individual may experience arise from a physical or mental impairment. Physical impairment includes sensory impairments, such as those that affect sight or hearing. Mental impairment includes a range of impairments relating to mental functioning, including what are often known as learning disabilities and other clinically recognised mental illnesses.


This means the impairment has lasted or is likely to last for at least 12 months or the rest of the person’s life. 

Substantial adverse effect

This means that the disability must be more than trivial or minor. An impairment which consists of a severe disfigurement is treated as having a substantial adverse effect on the ability of the person concerned to carry out normal day-today activities.
