We have a statutory remit to promote and monitor human rights; and to protect, enforce and promote equality across the seven “protected” grounds – age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation and gender reassignment.

You can find out more about us and about our work.

We do not provide advice on discrimination or human rights issues. If you need help or guidance on a discrimination or human rights matter which has affected you please contact the Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS). If you are unhappy with the service EASS has provided please follow the EASS complaints process.

If you have a general enquiry, or want to give feedback on our work, please use the form below.

Alternatively, you can write to us at:

Correspondence Unit
Third floor
Windsor House
50 Victoria Street

You can also use our British Sign Language (BSL) interpreting service.

If your enquiry requires a response, we usually aim to reply within 20 working days. However, if we are experiencing very high levels of enquiries, it may take us longer to reply than usual. We apologise for this, and hope you will bear with us.
