The Equal Rights Trust is working to protect the Equality Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1997 against attempts to weaken their protections, and working with the Roma Support Group to improve the situation of one of the groups most vulnerable to discrimination in the UK – the Roma.

We are: 

  • Responding to attempts to amend the Equality Act and to replace the Human Rights Act, arguing that such reforms would weaken the protection of human rights in the UK;
  • Challenging discrimination against the Roma in the delivery of essential services through litigation and direct engagement with responsible bodies;
  • Convening workshops to bring together Roma communities and public authorities in different regions to discuss how to ensure equal access to services for the Roma.
