Introduction - you can watch a summary of the issue below:
What is Challenging Discrimination and why is it important?
NICCY is concerned about a lack of progress on the calls to end discrimination made in 2018. We are still waiting for government to finalise laws which will stop age discrimination when accessing goods, facilities and services and there has been no further clarity on whether children of all ages will be included in these laws. There are ongoing issues for children being protected under the Mental Capacity Act and children in Northern Ireland are still not protected from assault in the same way as adults.
