A disability act is a law which is enacted by the government to protect the rights of people with disabilities. The Disability Act was first enacted in 1990 and was later revised in 2005. It provides the right to all people with disabilities, to live independently in society. The Act also guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities to participate in all areas of life.
The Disability Act was introduced to provide equal opportunities to people with disabilities. The act is a legal requirement for any business that receives funding from the government. The act provides for the creation of employment opportunities for people with disabilities. This is achieved through the provision of training programs for disabled persons. The act also encourages the creation of accessible buildings for disabled persons. The act was also intended to prevent discrimination against people with disabilities.
The Disability Act is a very important piece of legislation as it helps to ensure that people with disabilities have equal opportunities in all aspects of life. The act is enforced by the government and by local authorities. The act is enforced through the enforcement of the Local Authorities (Public Health) Regulations 1992. These regulations are enforced by local councils and other public bodies.
The act is enforced through the following means:
â€¢ Direct Action – this is where the disability act is enforced through the direct actions of the government. For example, the government may enforce the disability act by providing funding to local authorities or by directly enforcing the act.
â€¢ Indirect Action – this is where the act is enforced indirectly. This is done through the local authorities enforcing the act through the Local Authorities (Public Health). The act can also be enforced through the local authorities enforcing the Local Authorities (Public Health Regulations).
â€¢ Education – the disability act can also be enforced through education. This is done by teaching the disabled about their rights under the act. The government has also established a number of organisations that aim at educating people with disabilities. These include the National Association of Disability Rights Organisations (NADRO) and the National Federation of the Blind.
â€¢ Enforcement – the disability act can also enforced through the enforcement of the act by local councils. For example, the disability act can be enforced by the council ensuring that disabled persons have access to buildings.

- â€¢ The right to live independently
