On 1 October 2007 the three equality commissions merged into the new Equality and Human Rights Commission: Commission for Racial Equality (CRE), Disability Rights Commission (DRC) and Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC).
The websites of these commissions have also been incorporated into the new Equality and Human Rights Commission website.
Equality and Human Rights Commission
The Equality and Human Rights Commission champions equality and human rights for all, working to eliminate discrimination, reduce inequality, protect human rights and to build good relations, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to participate in society.
The Advisory Conciliation and Arbitration Service (ACAS)
ACAS provides advice and information on employment legislation, good practice and procedures in employee relations. The ACAS website has information from its own range of publications plus contact details for regional offices and enquiry lines. You can also browse their latest press releases.
The Employers Forum on Disability
The national employers' membership organisation focused on the needs of business with regard to disability. It is able to provide advice, information and support to members on all issues relating to disability.
Employers Forum on Age
In light of the fact that the majority of impairments are age related and we live in an ageing society, this site contains some very useful background information. This site also contains links to the Age Concern Site, where it is possible to access a wonderful array of research and information.
RADAR was really the first umbrella group for organisations of and for disabled people. In addition to supporting over 500 organisations and campaigning with and on behalf of disability, RADAR also produces some of the best disability related information that can be found anywhere.
