Disability Equity Duty

Under the Disability Equality Duty we must ensure that we:

  • Promote equality of opportunity between disabled people and other people.

  • Eliminate discrimination that is unlawful.

  • Eliminate harassment of disabled people that is related to their disabilities.

  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people.

  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

  • Take steps to take account of disabled people’s disabilities, even when that involves treating disabled people more favourably than other people.
