Action needed to remedy human rights scandal of treatment of people with capacity issues
At BIHR we have championed work to make it clear that the Human Rights Act provides a vital safety net for us all. Due to several court decisions there are some gaps in human rights protection for people in some care settings. We have been working with a range of organisations to call for change and to close this loophole.
BIHR is working with the Human Rights Lawyers Association to hold an exciting event this Monday Evening the 3
The #Action you can take: Ask your MP to support a proposal which will mean that people who use regulated care services will have access to the protections in the Human Rights Act. This will help ensure the vital safety net provided by the Human Rights Act can be accessed by all people using care services.
