Disability discrimination and your rights

DescriptionAs a disabled person, you have rights to protect you from discrimination. These rights cover most areas including:

- Employment
- Education
- Dealing with the police

The Equality Act 2010 and the United Nations (UN) Convention on disability rights help to enforce, protect and promote your rights. You can find out more on the GOV.UK website about your rights and the laws which protect them, and find further help and advice.
