Think Local Act Personal

The law says that public sector organisations have to think about the needs of everyone when they make decisions about how they provide services, and must not discriminate against anyone. The aim of this duty is to prevent discrimination, increase people's opportunities, and improve relationships between people. Private organisations do not have the same legal duty.
