Know your rights

A good place to start is the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s page on disability discrimination.

If you think you have been discriminated against, you can contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS), which is aimed at individuals who need information, advice and support on discrimination and human rights issues and the applicable law, particularly when this is more than other advice agencies and local organisations can provide.
