Definition of disability under the Equality Act 2010

You’re disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.
There are many aids that can be used to support a person with a disability. Here are just a few -

Hearing Aid - a small amplifying device which fits on the ear, worn by a partially deaf person.

Braille - a form of written language for blind people, in which characters are represented by patterns of raised dots that are felt with the fingertips.

Wheelchair - a chair fitted with wheels for use as a means of transport by a person who is unable to walk as a result of illness, injury, or disability.
