Everyone has the right to be free of prejudice and to have a fair chance in society. Discriminatory abuse occurs when someone targets another and then treats that person(s) unfairly because of something different about them.
The Equality Act 2010 protects people against discrimination. It is illegal and unfair for a person to face discrimination because of a protected characteristic, which includes age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, marriage (including same sex), civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion, belief or non-belief, and sexual orientation.
