Types Of Discriminatory Abuse
Discriminatory abuse is when someone picks on you or treats you unfairly because something about you is different. This can include unfair or less favourable treatment due to a person's race, gender, age, disability, religion, sexuality, appearance or cultural background.
Everyone has the right to be treated equally and express and practice their beliefs and values.
Discriminatory Abuse Can Include:
Unequal treatment due to race, gender, religion, age, sexuality or disability
Verbal abuse, inappropriate language, slurs, harassment and deliberate exclusion
Denial of basic human and civil rights e.g. allowing people to follow their own spiritual or cultural beliefs or choice about their own sexuality
Failure to meet and take into account religious and cultural needs of an individual
Racist graffiti or bringing racist material (magazines, leaflets) into the vulnerable individuals home
