Departments: Epilepsy

Volume 461: debated on Wednesday 6 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many people with epilepsy are employed by his Department; and if he will make a statement. (139098)

Although the Home Office has a figure of the number of people it employs who have declared a disability, this is not broken down into specific types such as epilepsy.

The department has a disability awareness guide for managers and colleagues of staff with epilepsy which was produced in consultation with the National Society for Epilepsy. The guide gives advice on best practice on working with staff with epilepsy as well as pointers on where to go for further advice and information.
