Disability Discrimination

News, views and information for people who are blind or partially sighted, with a discussion on how difficult it is to challenge discrimination using the law.

The Disability Discrimination Act was introduced in 1995. Twenty years on we ask how effective the legislation, the Equality Act, is at preventing disability discrimination. Peter White hears from Jean French, Legal Manager at the RNIB, Disability Rights barrister Catherine Casserley and John Dickenson Lilley, a visually impaired man who has brought more than forty cases.
