Funding the Equality Advisory and Support Service

We fund the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS), which provides information, advice and support on discrimination.

The service:

  • explains legal rights and remedies within discrimination legislation in England, Scotland and Wales
  • explains options for informal resolution and helps people to pursue them
  • refers people to conciliation or mediation services

It also helps people find out if they’re eligible for legal aid and, if not, helps them find accessible legal services so that they can prepare and place claims themselves.
