An amendment to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA 1995) requires public authorities, when carrying out their functions, to have due regard to the need to:
- promote positive attitudes towards disabled people
- encourage participation by disabled people in public life
The Department is required to submit to the Equality Commission a DAP showing how it proposes to fulfill these duties in relation to its functions.
