We make anticipatory adjustments to promote positive equality of access for disabled applicants, including access to benefits, facilities and services. We provide as many opportunities as possible for applicants to identify any special arrangements they may require, for example when inviting them for interview and continue to provide this level of care throughout their journey with us.
