Disability Discrimination Act
The Equality Act as of 1st October 2010 has now replaced the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act). The information on this page is for archive reasons and outlines further info about the DDA. The DDA placed a legal duty on all those who provide services to the public to make reasonable adjustments to the physical environment of their premises to ensure that disabled people can access their goods, services and facilities. Timely, accurate and authoritative advice and information is necessary to help providers meet these duties.
The DDA had 5 general parts.
- Part 1 (Definition of Disability)
- Part 2 (Employment)
- Part 3 (Facilities, goods and services)
- Part 4 (SENDA – Special Educational Needs and Disability Act)
- Part 5 (Transport)
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (website) has a wealth of information available to service providers and their advisors as well as general members of the public.
