People with disabilities, and those with lived experiences of mental illness, will lose discrimination protections to accommodate the religious beliefs of people who discriminate against them. 

The Government has released its draft Religious Discrimination Bill which aims to protect people of faith and without faith from discrimination in certain areas of public life, such as employment, education and the provision of goods and services. 

The Bill takes away rights from people currently protected under anti-discrimination laws, leaving at risk people with disabilities or with lived experiences of mental health issues.
