Funding available from EHRC for disability discrimination cases

The Equality and Human Rights Commission launched an initiative to provide funding for front line advice and representation for disability discrimination claims in January 2017.

The Commission says: “The work we will fund under this pilot must be carried out by 31st March 2017. So, we’d really like you to contact us with requests for funding by email (legalrequest@equalityhumanrights.com) or by calling us on 0161 829 8407 as soon as possible – and, ideally, by no later than 3rd February 2017.”
