Disability Access Audits Leicester, Derby, Nottingham & Midlands
January 3rd, 2012
The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) addressed the obstacles which many disabled people experience in everyday life: in employment; access to goods and services; transport; and education. The DDA applied to anyone who provided a service to the general public - whether it was a small corner shop or large Multinational Corporation, placing a duty on them to make reasonable adjustments to the way they provided their service so they did not discriminate against disabled customers or employee's. This act has now been replaced by the Equality Act 2010 but the same principles apply - see our Equality Act section for further guidance on the new Equality Act.
As an employer, provider of a service to the general public, or education provider you have a duty to make reasonable adjustments in anticipating the needs of disabled people
