National Human Rights Toolkit Launched
Yesterday, over 60 people attended the national launch of a Human Rights toolkit in Blackburn.
The British Institute of Human Rights (BIHR) launched their advocacy human rights toolkit, which has been developed in partnership with six organisations across England, in Blackburn. n-compass northwest was one of these organisations and we are very proud to be a part of this partnership.
The BIHR’s project states that "Care and Support: A Human Rights Approach to Advocacy, is empowering six advocacy and support organisations to make best use of the Human Rights Act in their everyday work supporting people with mental health and/or mental capacity issues."
Karen Blair, our Senior Duty Advocate and IMCA, n-compass Advocacy Service, said:
“n|compass advocacy service empowers individuals to develop their self advocacy skills by building their capacity to respond to their own health and social care concerns. Thanks to our work with the British Institute of Human Rights our involvement in the development of the project resources, advocates are able to hand even more autonomy to people we support. By providing the resources to individuals they are able to understand and feel empowered to apply human rights principles to their care and treatment.”
