Gateways guidance: 1. Introduction

The revised Gateways guidance takes into account the implementation of the Equality Act 2010. The Act does not apply to Northern Ireland. Therefore despite the Equality Act coming into force in the rest of the UK, the Disability Discrimination Act remains in force in Northern Ireland until further notice, as does the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Order.
