On 1 October 2007 the three equality commissions merged into the new Equality and Human Rights Commission:

      • Commission for Racial Equality (CRE)
      • Disability Rights Commission (DRC)
      • Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC)


Disability covers people of all ages with heart disease, diabetes, severe disfigurement, depression, schizophrenia, dyslexia, epilepsy, Downs syndrome and many other types of impairment. It is a recommendation that all company members and staff that deal with the public should receive Disability Awareness Training.

Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA), legal rights for disabled people are now in force. These cover employment, access to services, education, transport and housing. In September 2002 the law was extended to cover access to education for all disabled people. New employment rights and rights of access became law in October 2004.

These new changes in the law brought real changes in practice for disabled people. But changes in attitude and awareness are just as crucial. Despite the new law, many disabled people find it hard to take part in day-to-day life and do not have the same chances that others take for granted. The Equality and Human Rights Commission is here to put that right.

 In its first three years the The Disability Rights commission received 242000 calls of possible discrimination It is the aim of Blue Badge to ensure that your company or individual member of staff is not the reason for one of those calls.
