Disabled people need strong equality Specific Duties

The Equality Bill includes the equality duty for the public sector. What the public sector equality duty will mean in practice for public bodies (and disabled people) will depend on the content of Specific Duties – the practical things that public bodies will need to do.

The new Specific Duties will only be developed after the General Election. Inclusion London and many other organisations committed to equality are concerned that there be no dilution of the Specific Duties – in fact, they need to be even stronger. So watch this space for more information.
