About Down's Syndrome : Equality Act

DSA Submission on the Equality Act

The Select Committee on the Equality Act 2010 was set up on 11th June 2015 to consider the impact the Act has had on people with disabilities. The DSA has submitted evidence based upon information provided by its members.

The Equality Act gives individuals greater protection from unfair discrimination and makes it easier for employers, companies and education providers to understand their responsibilities. It also sets the standard for those who provide public services to treat everyone, with dignity and respect. The Human Rights and Equality Commission provides information and guidance for people who use services and those who provide them.
