This type of discrimination refers to treating someone with a protected characteristic less favourably than others
Equality and Inclusion Partnership a charity working across Warwickshire to promote equality, inclusion and elimination of discrimination
Discrimination is when you receive negative treatment because of who you are. It can happen because of your race, religion or gender, because of your age, sexuality or because you have a disability.
Discrimination can also happen in lots of different situations, from people saying something hurtful on the street or online abuse, to being turned down for a job opportunity or being denied service.
But however or whenever discrimination happens, it is unacceptable. EQuIP is here to help make it history.
There are several characteristics which might make you a target for discrimination. Remember, if someone discriminates against you for any reason regardless of whether you have that characteristic or not, it still matters, and you are still entitled to help and support.
Discrimination can happen anywhere, but here are some common places it can happen.
As a consumer
When using public services
When buying or renting a property
As a member or guest of a private club or association
