This briefing provides guidance for disabled people claiming benefits.

The Equality Act prevents people from being discriminated against in society and outlines the duty to make reasonable adjustments for disabled people.

The duty to make reasonable adjustments aims to make sure that a disabled person has access to and is able to use services in the same way (or as close as possible) as a non-disabled person.
