Welcome to the website of the national Disability Conciliation Service.

Through conciliation, the DCS offers disabled people a uniquely accessible and empowering alternative to court or tribunal action, as a way of exercising their civil rights under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA).

We provide an opportunity to resolve complaints relating to DDA Part lll (Goods and Services) and DDA Part lV (Education).

What is Disability Conciliation?

Disability Conciliation is an opportunity for disabled people and service providers to resolve cases under the DDA. It is a "win/win" situation where parties come together in a one-off meeting to find their own solutions.





Conciliation: A handshake.
