Legally Disabled project secures further funding
We are very pleased to announce that we have secured further funding from Cardiff University that will enable us to extend the timescale and activities of the Legally Disabled research project.
This will enable us to do more work around disseminating the research and engaging with organisations across the legal profession to ensure that our findings and recommendations have greater impact.

We have been asked to promote this free seminar – if you have an interest in disability within the legal profession, then this will be a timely and relevant event to attend.
The invisible impairments in the workplace event has been designed to support solicitors, HR and D&I practitioners. This event looks at the varying experiences of members of the profession who live with invisible/hidden impairments. We will also be discussing conditions such as cancer that have been acquired during a solicitors working career and the ways in which employers can be better equipped to support an employee with an invisible impairment.
- Top tips on how to discuss your disability in the workplace
- Learn how to support an employee with a hidden disability
- Gain first hand insight of the experiences of solicitors with hidden disabilities.
