Promoting disability equality in the public sector A publication by RADAR - the Disability Network Whatever indicator you consider, disabled people fare badly, whether it is lack of educational qualifications, poor employment rates, high crime rates or low use of services. This guidance provides public sector bodies, organisations delivering services in the public sector and disabled people with a range of examples of organisations who have successfully promoted disability equality. Information is also set out on involving disabled people, action planning and assessing the disability equality impact of policies and services. Also clearly identified are some highlights of the expectations disabled people have of high-performing public sector bodies. Many organisations will be looking at how effective their work has been at promoting disability equality. Some will be revising their equality schemes and the legal obligations of public sector bodies are set out at the end of this guidance. The massive gaps for disabled people can only be closed by public sector bodies actively promoting disability equality. This guidance aims to support that journey.
