Disability status at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office is declared and voluntary. In this context the figures requested are:

Percentage
Proportion of staff who have declared a disability 2.9
Proportion of staff employed since April 2005 who have declared a disability 1.4

Wilton Park is our only agency. The number of staff, and the proportion of disabled employees, are both so small that disclosure would risk identifying individuals.
