    Hi there and welcome to the community 

    There isn't a list of conditions that come under the equality act but it has a definition of what it covers which is 

    A physical or mental impairment that significantly affects the ability to carry out day to day activities that is likely to last 12 months or more

    Welcome to the community @feehanchris :) 

    I can see that janer1967 has already explained what's covered in the Equality Act.

    Do you mind me asking why you're interested in knowing about this? Are you facing discrimination at the moment?

    I'm sorry to hear that @feehanchris. Would you feel comfortable sharing some more information about the kind of discrimination you're facing at the moment? I understand if you don't want to share any further details, however :)
