The 1995 Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) places a direct duty on employers, service providers and education not to discriminate against disabled people. The Act is continually being amended in order to strengthen the rights of disabled people and ensure that all disabled people are included within mainstream society on an equal basis. Voluntary organisations have a duty to keep up to date with new legislation and respond to it in the best way they can.
