DDA Compliance

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) became law in 1995.

This bill made it mandatory that all establishments and service providers, open to the public have taken reasonable steps to provide access for disabled people. The Act granted disabled people new rights of access to goods and services, education, employment, transport and accommodation. This, and other discriminatory legislation has since been consolidated under the Equality Act 2010.

Since 1st October 1999 it has been a legal requirement for UK businesses and service providers to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people, such as providing extra help or making changes to the way they provide their services.
