Got to thank Suzanne for this fab bit of research xx

The following links cover all the issues under the DDA act and also the human rights side of it as that goes hand in hand. It also gives the links to advice on what support you should be given and what information that you are allowed to ask the DRs for.

EHRC - The law about disability discrimination
www.equalityhumanrights.com

If you are disabled, or have had a disability, the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) makes it unlawful for you to be discriminated against in:

- employment
- trade organisations and qualifications bodies
- access to goods, facilities and services
- the management, buying or renting of land or property
- education


Disability and the Equality Act 2010 : Directgov - Disabled people

The Migraine Trust have set up a advocacy service -

http://www.migrainetrust.org/advocacy

Their Advocacy Service aims to:

  • Empower migraine sufferers to take greater control of the decisions that affect them.

  • Provide information to ensure that migraine sufferers can make informed decisions, assert their rights, and claim their entitlements.

  • Enable individuals to advocate for themselves or another migraine sufferer.

  • Advocate for individuals by providing professional representation, where appropriate.

  • Promote equality of opportunity and prevent discrimination and social exclusion.
