The Equality Act 2010 (UK)
"The Equality Bill received Royal Assent on 8 April and formally became The Equality Act 2010. All public bodies must think about treating people from different groups fairly and equally (Equality Duty). Equality Duty - this is a law for public bodies telling them they must think about how they can make sure their work supports equality. It has been made explicit 'that reasonable adjustments for disabled people include reasonable steps to provide information in accessible formats, when the way information is provided would otherwise put disabled people at a substantial disadvantage'"
