Mid Suffolk District Council welcomes the new Act which came in to force 1st October 2010. The Act replaces the Disability Discrimination Act and offers greater legal protection for disabled people. In addition the Act clarifies that positive action can be taken to address inequality, while the duty to make reasonable adjustments is strengthened.
