The British Institute of Human Rights launched ‘Human rights in action – a toolkit for change’.
What is the toolkit?
This toolkit is an introductory resource on human rights in the UK. It is aimed at anyone working in the voluntary and community sector in the UK, in particular those campaigning and providing advocacy on equalities issues. In will also be of general use for anyone wanting to know about how human rights apply to UK issues. It provides basic and practical information about what human rights are, how they are relevant to the voluntary and community sector and how you can effectively apply them in your work.
Why has it been produced?
Consultation carried out by BIHR and others has revealed a huge appetite among voluntary and community sector organisations for information about human rights. Skills and knowledge in human rights language, law and practice can support the voluntary and community sector to be more effective.
