Disability Discrimination Act 2005

The Government is committed to comprehensive civil rights for disabled people and the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 is the final step towards fulfilling it's pledge to extend rights and opportunities for disabled people. It builds on other legislative steps already in place, including the setting up of the Disability Rights Commission, and includes measures to amend the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA) in areas such as the definition of disability, public sector duties, premises and private clubs. It also contains measures on transport which are outlined in more detail in the following pages.
