MS and your rights

If you have MS, the Equality Act can protect you against disability discrimination in education, work and services.

It can make sure things are accessible for you and that you get reasonable adjustments and support from employers, colleges, venues and people who give you a service.

You’re also protected from discrimination if you’re connected with someone who has a disability, like a family member or friend. And it can protect you if you've complained about discrimination or supported someone else’s claim.

The Act applies in Great Britain only. If you’re from Northern Ireland, contact the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland.
