1. Overview

As 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.
