Equality Commission for Northern Ireland: proposals for disability protection

In March 2012, the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland (ECNI) published ‘Strengthening Protection for Disabled People. Proposals for Reform’.

The report sets out the Commission’s recommended changes to disability equality law. The changes being proposed will not only ensure that Northern Ireland equality law keeps pace with changes with the law in GB, but will also help to harmonise and simplify the law and strengthen the rights of disabled people and their carers.
