Discrimination and harassment

This section looks at what you can do if the council, your landlord or any other service provider treats you less favourably or harasses you because of your sex, your racial or ethnic background, your religion or beliefs, your sexual orientation or gender identity or because you are disabled.

You may find you're discriminated against in more than one way - for example, because you're a disabled person and you're black, or because you're a woman and a lesbian. In this case, it's a good idea to talk to an adviser at a Citizens Advice Bureau or a solicitor at a law centre or in private practice, to decide on the best course of action.
