Discrimination and rights

Find out your rights and how you are protected from discrimination.

  • Ageism

    Ageism is discrimination or unfair treatment based on a person’s age. It’s important that ageism is tackled to make sure that nobody loses out because of their age.
  • Human rights

    Human rights are basic rights that belong to all of us simply because we are human. They embody key values in our society such as fairness, dignity, equality and respect.
  • The Equality Act

    The Equality Act protects you from discrimination or unfair treatment on the basis of certain personal characteristics, such as age.
