25th Anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act, but what still needs to be improved?
On the 8th November 2020, it’s the 25th Anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).
The DDA was a landmark piece of legislation that was a result of years of protests and campaigning by disabled people. The act made it unlawful to discriminate against disabled people in relation to employment, the provision of goods and services, education and transport.
The DDA has since been replaced by the Equality Act 2010.
25 years later, what do you think still needs to change to guarantee equality for disabled people? Let us know in the comments below if you'd like your answers to be featured in a Scope blog!
