star this property answer text <p>Whilst noting that it is a personal choice, Armed Forces Personnel are encouraged to anonymously declare their sexual orientation on the Armed Forces HR system. A wide range of methods are utilised to encourage personnel to declare. These include communications campaigns, briefings from senior leaders, encouragement at staff college courses/conferences, involvement of the LGBT staff networks and as part of induction procedures for arrivals at a new unit. Personnel are assured of the confidentiality of the data and the benefits of recording it - to ensure policies are relevant, appropriate and informed.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence recognises disability in Armed Forces personnel as part of a diverse workforce. However, the Armed Forces currently have a disability exemption from the Equality Act 2010 because of their requirement to achieve and maintain operational effectiveness, part of which rests on the need for all personnel to be interoperable and able to carry out a wide range of functions frequently at short notice. Disability declarations are therefore not required from Service personnel.</p> more like this
