P4

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 aims to end the discrimination that many disabled people face. This Act has been significantly extended, and amended by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. The come to change when people with disability were facing discrimination. The new act now gives disabled people rights in areas of employment, education and access to goods facilities and services etc. disability discrimination act now require public bodies to promote equality of opportunity for disable people.

For example before was when a person have physical disability, there where no chance of them to get access to the services because of their mobility. When the act came up in 1995 it aimed to end the discrimination that many people with disability were facing, the policy of organizations was to give people with disability the opportunity of access to the services and to have equal opportunity like other people in way of education, employment and also allow the government to set minimum standards so that disable people can use public transport easily and also health centre like GPs, medical centre etc. Legislation such as disability discrimination Act has given health and social care provider legal responsibility to positively promote equality to disable client to access to the health and care centre. It's also gives the guideline to promote equal opportunity by treating them with respect and dignity. For example comparing disability and sex discrimination both are equal, why I said both are equal because back to the day woman where discriminated against in area of employment for the reason their gender, they used to consider them as house wife to stay at home to look after children, their husband and to take care of their home when man use to go work.

When sex discrimination was set out the aim of it was to stop the sex discrimination at work. Even now woman's are employed at work but there still a bit of discrimination going on because if you will see the majority of people that works part time are women and the most people that gets higher salary are man. Within in health and social care this is called anti-discriminatory practice. When the discrimination act came up woman had opportunity of doing same job with man or though women are less paid than man and the majority of part-time workers are women (81% across Europe, 82% in the UK). In 2003 women working part-time earned just 60% of the average hourly earnings of men who worked full-time. Because the societies are considering them as woman should be at home looking after kids, husband and doing house work.
