Disability Action Plan

Closed 21 Jan 2020

Opened 29 Oct 2019


The draft Disability Duties and Action Plan includes measures which will assist the Council in the promotion of Equality of Opportunity for disabled people through the delivery of its services and functions.

The Disability Discrimination Act places duties on public authorities, when carrying out their functions, to have due regard to the need to:

  • Promote positive attitudes towards disabled people; and
  • Encourage participation by disabled people in public life.

These are collectively referred to as ‘the disability duties’.

Measures relate to the promotion of positive attitudes towards disabled people and encourage the participation of disabled people in public life.
