2. Can an educational establishment (e.g. an evening school or university) or a service provider refuse to provide me with services or facilities because I need to take care of my family members?

It may be unlawful for an educational establishment to deny admission to, or expel a student, on the basis of family status. In other words, the school cannot deny your admission only because you have to take care of your family members, unless there are exceptional circumstances such as you insist on attending classes with your child together.

It may also be unlawful for a goods/services provider to refuse to provide goods, services or facilities to you only because you have to take care of your family members.
