The Ministry of Equality will be undertaking a series of awareness campaigns in order to help break down some barriers people with disabilities face on a daily basis.

This will include an open day event at the end of this month to allow people from the private sector to be better informed on their obligations, as well as learning how to best welcome people with disabilities into their premises.

The GFSB will be actively engaging with its members to offer support and guidance and to promote events relating to this enactment of sections 13 & 14 to ensure the message is distilled throughout the business community.
