BIHR's training will help you understand how human rights laws apply to your work. This could be because your organisation has legal duties, or you may be able to utilise human rights in your advocacy and campaigning work. Whatever your role, we will help you translate human rights into your everyday practice.

We provide:
  • in-house, bespoke training to organisations
  • consortia training to allow groups to pool resources and buy-in training
  • a public training calendar

To discuss your training needs and how BIHR can help you meet these please contact Helen Wildbore on email or call 0207 882 5851.

Five reason why you need human rights training

  1. Improved outcomes for staff and service users. Human rights provide a practical planning and decision-making framework that can lead to more effective and better quality public services.
  2. Empowering communities. Communities who understand their rights can strengthen their voice and influence with service providers and decision makers.
  3. Human rights provide a powerful language that can be used to challenge poor treatment, reduce inequalities, empower individuals and inspire, engage and enthuse staff.
  4. Applying human rights principles and standards strengthens existing work promoting equality and social inclusion, and supports a wide range of national and local government targets and performance standards.
  5. It's the law - public service providers have a legal duty to comply with the Human Rights Act.
