At IPSA, we enable MPs to focus on what really matters by providing an exemplary and seamless regulatory service.
We also support the differing needs of a diverse Parliament by supporting MPs to meet their obligations under the Equality Act by providing funding for reasonable adjustments for their staff and constituents.
IPSA also provides funding to support MPs who have disabilities or long-term sickness, so that they can continue to perform their role.
MPs have a unique role and there are some aspects of the role which cannot be performed by anyone else. IPSA will take this into account when it assesses what a reasonable adjustment is.
This guidance explains and seeks to increase awareness of, the support IPSA can provide to support reasonable adjustments for MPs, their staff, and constituents.
To discuss reasonable adjustments on the parliamentary estate, MPs can seek advice from the Workplace Adjustments Manager at the House of Commons WPA@parliament.uk or from Members’ HR Service (0207 219 2080 or email@example.com).
MPs’ staff should first discuss any adjustments with their MP, who may then seek advice from the House of Commons or IPSA.
To discuss reasonable adjustments in the constituency or outside the parliamentary estate, MPs should discuss your, your staff or constituents’ requirements with your IPSA Account Manager.
You can contact us at 020 7811 6400 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to discuss your requirements in person, please contact us and we will arrange to meet you.
