Equality and human rights helpline for advisers

The Commission is providing a service for the advice sector, solicitors, other organisations that support individuals with their problems, trade unions, and ombudsman schemes.

  • do you work with people who may have been discriminated against? 
  • are you unsure whether someone might be able to make a complaint about a human rights issue? 
  • have you been asked to help with a discrimination or human rights issue? Do you want to talk through a case?

Experts at the Commission are available to help.

We offer a telephone-based support service.
