Although we have very limited staff numbers we seek to respond to all emails within three working days. Feel free to check with a follow up message if you do not receive a timely response - the internet is very useful but not perfect and your message may not have actually got to us, or our reply may not have got to you.

Have us email you

If you want us to email you when there are significant updates to the Commission's site, there are electronic mailing lists you can join, on disabilty rights issues and on other human rights issues. Addresses on our lists will not be passed to anyone else without consent and you can leave the list as simply as joining if you decide to.
