Equality and Human Rights Commission
The Equality and Human Rights Commission
formed in 2007 and has replaced the role and functions of the Commission for Racial Equality, the Disability Rights Commission and the Equal Opportunities Commission. Its mission is to eliminate discrimination, reduce inequality, protect human rights and build good relations, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to
participate in society.
The Equality Advisory & Support Service (EASS)
was established in 2012 to provide advice and support to individuals on issues relating to equality and human rights across England, Scotland and Wales. EASS can also accept referrals from organisations which, due to capacity or funding issues, are unable to provide in depth help and support to local users of their services. Their Helpline services receive over 3000 contacts per month. Follow the link to more information and contact details.
