Fife RC has drafted its own blueprint to give the disabled a better deal, the Herald reports (page 7). Fife claims its Disabled Equality Policy is more comprehensive than current government proposals for combating discrimination against people with disabilities.
The policy, which the equal opportunities committee yesterday recommended should be implemented and monitored by all departments, contains many of the principles in the Civil Rights (Disabled Persons) (Scotland) and the subsequent Civil Rights Disabled Persons Bills. Neither Bill became law.
Fife's document took two years to prepare although many of its aims are already in operation. It covers the promotion of access by disabled people to jobs within the council and organisations funded by them, as well as committing the council to improving access to buildings, other services, facilities and information.
