At BIHR we translate what human rights laws means for us in our everyday lives as individuals, public sector workers or charity and community groups. Check out some of our practical, plain language guides and factsheets which are free to download.
As you download your free resource please consider making a small donation to BIHR (e.g. £2). As a charity we receive limited funds, and your support will help us make sure we can update, reprint and post hardcopies to people who need our resources, particularly those with limited internet access.
