This report explores how organisations have responded to the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 as amended by the Disability Discrimination Act 2005. It is a follow-up to studies undertaken in 2003 and 2006. The study has explored more fully changes introduced by the 2005 legislation, and particularly the extension of anti-discrimination provisions to cover: public bodies exercising their functions; larger private clubs; and locally electable authorities in their dealings with their disabled elected members. The research has also explored whether and how the current economic downturn has impacted on organisations’ willingness and ability to comply with the legislation. The research is based on 2,000 telephone interviews and 97 in-depth interviews.
