The recent Equality Act 2010 introduces new provisions dealing with discrimination and a raft of legislative provisions in connection with the disabled providing rights in the areas of employment, education, access to goods services and facilities and the functions of public bodies.
Have you been directly discriminated against or are you a carer of a disabled person and have faced discrimination yourself? If so, please contact us.
Additionally, legislation for the disabled also provides that there is a duty to the disabled people and there are a number of services which must be provided for them.. We can assist you in obtaining such an assessment and helping you receive the necessary support services. The duty to meet the assessed needs is a very strong one and will assist you in ensuring that this duty is carried out by your Local Authority even though they may have sought to exclude you from the definition of disabled. See also Community Care Assessments.
We can also assist you through obtaining the necessary Disabled Facilities Grants and any adaptations that need to be made to your home.
