Monday December 3, 2012 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2012.┬áThis year’s theme is:

“Removing barriers to create an inclusive and accessible society for all”.

For my contribution, I was inspired, after reading a preview of Seth Godin’s excellent new book, “The Icarus Deception“, ┬áto publish a report of my experiences and recommendations entitled:

“Disability Discrimination Legislation – Does it work in the UK? It’s time for change.”

Click here to download the report

I’ve outlined 10 discrimination cases I’ve taken over the last 6 years which illustrate shortcomings in how the existing legislation in the UK is implemented and made a recommendation to adopt similar legislation to that which exists in Ontario, Canada:

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005
This has mandatory components I feel are essential if we are to progress towards an accessible UK in the foreseeable future.

Please distribute the report freely, debate publicly and encourage action to support my recommendation.

Thank you.

Help to make a positive impact on this International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
