Domestic abuse: separate and single-sex service providers

The Equalities and Human Rights Commission has published a guide on the Equality Act sex and gender reassignment provisions. The guide is for service providers (ie anyone who provides goods, facilities or services to the public) who are looking to establish and operate a separate or single-sex service.

The guide covers (and gives examples, including in respect of the provision of domestic abuse support services, for) the exceptions in the Equality Act which allow services to be provided, or a policy to be applied: only to one sex, separately to people of each sex, or differently to people of each sex.
