To work out if you’re disabled under the Equality Act, you need to check if:

  1. You have ‘an impairment’ - this means your physical or mental abilities are different or reduced in some way compared to most people

  2. Your impairment makes it harder to do everyday activities 

  3. The effect of your impairment is long-term


The Equality Act’s definition of disability is quite wide so you might be considered disabled under the Equality Act even if you don’t see yourself as disabled - for example if you’re autistic or if you have ADHD or a long-term injury.
