Equality Act 2010 Audits and Training

Equality Act 2010 Audits

The Equality Act 2010 brought together all existing discrimination legislation and the Human Rights Act 1998.

It now incorporates and strengthens the Disability Discrimination Act 2005 (DDA) which came into effect on the 4th of December 2006. The Act introduced a general duty on public bodies to promote disability equality.

The Acts states that public bodies shall:

  • Promote equality of opportunity between disabled people and other people.
  • Eliminate harassment of disabled people.
  • Take steps to meet the needs of disabled people even if this requires more favourable treatment.
  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people.
  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public.
  • Encourage participation of disabled people in public life.

The DDA 2005 also makes other provision regarding the definition of disability, access to private members clubs, and clarification of other associated matters. It includes the provision for access to Transport and Buildings where public access is required.
