EHRC
The Commission for Equality and Human Rights, established under the Equality Act 2006, came into being on 1 October 2007. The Commission has since rebranded itself the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The EHRC took over the functions of the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC), Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) and Disability Rights Commission (DRC). The EHRC aims to bring together the expertise and resources to promote equality and challenge discrimination on grounds of race, gender, gender reassignment, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief and age, as well as tackling human rights issues.
