GET INVOLVED Out and About Events Human Rights for Advocacy - Training Sessions What is it and who is it for? This free training is for advocates working on health and well-being issues. It will consist of a first session covering human rights and their relevance to advocacy. Then a second follow-up session that will go into more advanced detail about how to use human rights arguments to challenge decisions and enact change. When is it? First training session: May 24 2017 - Completed Second training session: June 28 2017 It is important that you attend both training sessions to get maximum benefit, and to access the second session we ask that you have completed the first. How does it tie in with other events? BIHR strives to work across the four nations of the United Kingdom to ensure that we are in touch with human rights issues that are relevant to everyone, not just people in London. As such, we’ve held a range of events recently in Liverpool, Leeds, and Blackburn that you may have heard of as part of other projects. In addition to this work, ‘Human Rights and Advocacy’ is engaging specifically with advocates in the north east. We’ll be following the sessions with a fact-sheet to support advocates on health and well-being issues. It is an opportunity to not only receive free training, but to influence a useful resource that will be used by advocates across the country. How do you get involved?
