Get discrimination advice

Jim and adviser newIf you're being discriminated against because of who you are, you don't have to put up with it. There are a number of ways you can resolve the problem, from having an informal word, to taking a case to a tribunal.

It's important to get advice to help you. An adviser can:

  • Help you take a step back and put things in perspective;
  • Help you think about what outcome you want;
  • Explain your options and the effects of choosing one over another;
  • Help you gather any evidence you need to take things further;
  • If your problem is at work and you decide to raise a grievance they can help you put your grievance in writing and prepare for the meeting;
  • Make sure you don't miss any important deadlines for making a claim if you decide to take that route.

Use the menu on the right hand side to find advice agencies in your area.
