Health and social care : legislation/policy

  • Health and social care : legislation/policy

What are the strengths and weaknesses of The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 ? ? ? =(

So far I've only thought of:

Strengths

) This act allows the individuals to know the process of what they should do when they have been discriminated due to their disability (Redress); so it

guides them with the procedure to take.

) It prevents prejudice that can lead to discrimination.
) Individuals would feel safe and secure.


Weaknesses

( Does not change the behaviours and attitudes of those discriminating.
( Does not apply to prison officers, fire fighters, police officers, aircraft, and hovercraft categories.


Yeah...I kinda need more ? And I really can't think of anymore >.< Help?
