Disability Action Plan

This page is where we hold information on our Disability Action Plan.

Designated public authorities are subject to two interrelated duties under Sections 49A and 49B of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. Section 49A places a duty on designated public authorities to have due regard to the need: 

  • to promote positive attitudes towards disabled persons; and 
  • to encourage participation by disabled persons in public life.

Section 49B places a duty on each designated public authority to prepare a plan outlining how it proposes to fulfil the Section 49A duty.

A plan is a description of procedural and practical arrangements that each public authority has committed to. These plans are commonly called Disability Action Plans (DAPs).
