The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995 is not, as some people seem to think, a set of regulations for wheelchair users. It covers people who have physical disabilities, sight and hearing impairments, and learning and mental disabilities. There are more than eight million disabled people in the UK and, as the population ages, the number is growing. So this is not an act protecting a small minority.
