It is the right of all people to be free from discrimination, to have a fair chance to succeed in society.

Discriminatory abuse can occur when someone targets another and proceeds to treat that person(s) unfairly due to something being different about that individual(s).

This is set out in law in the Equality Act 2010. Therefore, it is illegal and unfair for a person to experience disadvantage on the basis of a protected characteristic, which include: age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, marriage (including same sex) and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race, religion, belief or non-belief and sexual orientation.
