The Disability Discrimination Act 1995

The Disability Discrimination Act was introduced in 1995 to provide legal rights for disabled people. The Act provides protection to all disabled people in employment, access to goods and services, education and buying or renting land or property. This includes the need to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people and makes it unlawful to discriminate against disabled people by treating disabled employees and customers less favourably for a reason related to their disability/impairment.

In 2006 the Act was enhanced through the introduction of the Disability Equality Duty covering the Public Sector. Under this Duty all Public authorities must actively promote Disability Equality in all that they do.
