  • Meet your Duty to Promote Disability Equality under the Disability Equality Duty

Launched in December 2007 the Disability Equality Duty requires public authorities to promote equality for disabled people. If acted upon thoroughly, this duty has the potential to herald a transformation in public services and the lives of disabled people.

Primary and Secondary Local Authority schools will be required to produce a disability equality scheme outlining their plans to increase opportunities for disabled people. These include:

  • Promoting equality for disabled people by producing a disability equality scheme which outlines their plans to increase opportunities for disabled people
  • Exercising “due regard” for promoting equality, eliminating discrimination and harassment
  • Promoting positive attitudes towards disabled people
  • Taking steps to ensure disabled people’s needs are met
