The Disability Rights Commission - Scotland
The Disability Rights Commission Scottish Homepage provides a link into the national Open4All campaign website.
The Open4All site is aimed at raising awareness of the introduction of legislation on 1 October 2004 where by all service providers, including retailers, will have to change physical features that make it difficult for disabled people to use their services.
Pubs, night clubs, gym and swimming pools, hospitals, restaurants, shops and all service providers will have to make "reasonable adjustments" to their premises or the way that they provide their services so that they are not unreasonably difficult for disabled people to use.
NetRegs is a free website designed to help small businesses navigate the environmental legislation governing their activities. Set up by the UK's three environmental regulators, the site is easy-to-use and all visitors remain anonymous - there is no need to register.
