Community life

Life’s not just about school and work and neither is equal opportunity. People have a right to be treated fairly and have equal access in:

  • customer service, such as in shops or from professionals or tradespeople
  • eligibility for scholarships, awards or prizes
  • receiving a qualification for a particular occupation
  • club membership, for instance, sports clubs
  • accommodation, such as staying in a hotel, buying a house or renting a flat
  • dealings with a local council or a government agency
  • access to premises that are open to the public.
