Face coverings discrimination crisis

Last week we received many harrowing cases of extreme disability discrimination.  People being refused medical treatment, food, banking, transport and other services on an unprecedented scale.  Harassment has become everyday with people peaceably going about their business being prevented from doing so by staff and even, in some cases, the public.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has written to supermarkets warning them that they should not be discriminatiing against disabled people unable to wear face covering.

We have three members of staff.  EHRC has many more.  We will get back to you as soon as we can.  In the meantime you may not need us if the EHRC agrees to take your case - it has a legal department.

The EHRC should be made aware of your situation anyway.  Contact details here .

Please note there is usually a six month time limit to get your case to court.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have left messages of encouragement and support.  In such dark times this has been a great boost - much appreciated.
