Stand up for equality

Our human rights approach

Our human rights come from our common humanity. We all rely on our human rights everyday, even when we don’t realise it.

Our human rights approach is about:

  • applying human rights in beneficial ways to everyday situations with clients and colleagues and in our work with public authorities

  • respecting people’s dignity and rights in all we do

  • empowering people to build on their own strengths and resolve problems themselves wherever possible

  • involving people with direct experience of the issues in all key stages of our work, the ‘nothing about us without us’ philosophy.
