Equality in United Kingdom

Equality in North Ireland

Equality is an alternative term for ‘Equal Opportunities’.

It is based on the legal obligation to comply with anti-discrimination legislation. Equality protects people from being discriminated against on the grounds of group membership i.e. sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion, belief, age or dependant responsibilities.
