Disability Discrimination Act 2006Health and Social CareGuidance on Meaning of Disabled and Code of Practice

The Disability Discrimination Act 2006 makes it unlawful to discriminate against disabled persons in connection with the provision of goods, facilities and services and the disposal or management of premises. It also places a duty on a provider of services to make reasonable adjustments in the way the service is provided if it is impossible or unreasonably difficult for a disabled person to make use of a service.
An essential part of the Act is what is meant by disabled and the Department of Health and Social Care has prepared Guidance on matters to be taken into account in relation to the meaning of disabled. It is also important that service providers understand their duties under the Act and the Department has prepared a Code of Practice to assist in this respect.
The Department welcomes comments on both documents.

Community SafetyDHAConsultation, in principle, on the introduction of greater identification verification measures at harbours

It is considered the lack of provision to verify the identity of persons using the Island’s sea ports represents a weakness in the Island’s law enforcement capabilities. There is a concern that public and community safety are compromised by virtue of the fact there is currently no requirement for persons travelling through the Island’s sea ports to produce any document capable of verifying they are the person they claim to be. The Minister for Home Affairs has therefore launched a consultation on the principle of requiring persons wishing to use the sea ports of the Island to provide, or be able to provide on request, photographic verification of their identity.

A survey has also been opened with regard to this consultation. If you would prefer to use the survey to submit your views, this can be accessed via the webpage on the link below.
