Creating a fairer Britain
Welcome to this new resource which has been designed to help you easily find the guidance you need to meet your human rights obligations and to implement good practice in your sector.
We have produced this resource for people working in the public sector or in organisations carrying out public functions. Some of the resources will also be useful for advocacy organisations.
The resource currently contains reviews of 39 pieces of guidance. We have drawn together a range of good practice and learning material on human rights, both generic and from across the public sector - education, children's services, policing and criminal justice, health and social care - together with material on supporting the human rights of particular groups, such as older and disabled people and refugees and asylum seekers.
A key feature of the resource is that, rather than simply listing and linking to existing guidance, we have produced short, accessible summaries of each publication to highlight their key human rights messages and other essential information. Wherever possible, these summaries also highlight links between human rights and equalities.
These summaries have been produced on behalf of the Commission by the Human Rights and Social Justice Research Institute at London Metropolitan University.
While the guidance we have reviewed here covers a wide range of issues and different areas of the public sector, there are a number of common and recurring themes that should be applicable to everyone.
Read on for more information about these key messages.
We will add to the collection over the coming months. If you know of any other guidance that might usefully be included, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that you find the resource helpful and easy to use. If you have any feedback please email: email@example.com
