London for All is delighted to invite you to participate in this FREE introductory workshop on Human Rights legislation. The workshop will be delivered by the British Institute of Human Rights who have over 10 years’ experience of working with voluntary and community groups to harness the power of human rights in everyday practice to strengthen policy, campaigns and advocacy
Who is it for?
Voluntary Community Organisations looking to get an introduction on our human rights law here in the UK.
What is it about?
Human rights are backed up by duties to respect, protect and fulfil, providing powerful tools to help drive change and strengthen advocacy and outcomes.
This workshop will give you an introduction to our human rights law here in the UK (the Human Rights Act) and how it can be used as a practical tool for change by those working in VCSE organisations.
During the workshop we will:
- Give an introduction to human rights: the principles, history and context
- Give an introduction to the Human Rights Act: the rights it contains, how the Act has been used by VCSE organisations and their clients
- The Human Rights Act in practice: case studies
