Taking Action Against Ageism


Ageism is treating people differently based upon their age or perceived age. It is a serious issue which can devastate lives. Ageism is also known as age discrimination and it is prohibited under the Equality Act 2010. This means that if you experience it, there is legal protection and you can do something about it.

This leaflet gives details about four areas where age discrimination is most often experienced by older people and offers guidance on how you can take action against it.
