Kester Disability Rights note in a blog post of 25 Jun (page 6) that

There is usually a six month time limit to get your case to court.

What provision might they be referring to and where can I read more about it?

This is probably refering to the time limit at Section 118 of the Equality Act 2010. Subject to some exceptions,

proceedings on a claim within section 114 may not be brought after the end of... the period of 6 months starting with the date of the act to which the claim relates ...

Sonia Birdee (barrister) has shared some slides on the topic: Limitation in Equality Act 2010 claims (non-employment). She describes the general limitation period and also presents some ways of potentially getting more time.
