Religion and Belief

The Equality Act 2010 outlaws discrimination on the basis of religion and belief.  The legislation is broad in that it covers everyone including those who do not have a religion/belief.  The term religion/belief covers mainstream religions and beliefs as well as those that are currently less well recognised, including philosophical beliefs such as vivisection.  Political beliefs however are not covered.  The law makes illegal any form of prohibited conduct in relation to religion and belief (including discrimination, harassment and victimisation) and requires the College as a public body to advance equality of opportunity between people of different religions and beliefs.


The Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006 makes it an offense in a public or private space to use threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or display any written material which is threatening, abusive or insulting with the intention of stirring up racial or religious hatred or where racial or religoius hatred is likely to be stirred up.
