What are my rights?

Your rights are what you are legally entitled to as a citizen of this country.

Rights cover many areas such as human rights, civil rights, disabled people’s rights, young people’s rights and so on.

People with autism have specific rights with regard to their care and support.

If you are unsure of your rights, you should ask for advice – see the links below.

Connexions also offers lots of information about your rights, including information on young people’s rights and disabled people’s rights.
