We have been trading in your area for over 25 years and we have undertaken many projects such as ramp access to classrooms with handles, ramp access to domestic properties, widening doors, new kitchens and new wet rooms adapted to meet your needs. We have also fitted a 3 storey lift specifically for disabled access.

What is The Disability Discrimination Act?

Disability Discrimination Act

The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 aims to end the discrimination that faces many people with disabilities. This Act has been significantly extended, including by the Disability Discrimination (NI) Order 2006 (DDO). It now gives people with disabilities rights in the areas of:

  • employment
  • education
  • access to goods, facilities and services, including larger private clubs and transport services
  • buying or renting land or property, including making it easier for people with disabilities to rent property and for tenants to make disability-related adaptations
  • functions of public bodies, for example issuing of licenses
