Our Know Your Human Rights tool for women survivors has now been launched.

You can access it here: www.knowyourhumanrights-domesticabusesurvivors.co.uk

Over the past year we have been working with women survivors of domestic abuse, and the staff that support them, to create an online tool which will support women to know their human rights and the duties of public services to respect and protect these, not only to keep them safe (which is vital) but to also help rebuild their lives.

The views and needs of women are central to this project. We are mapping and testing directly with women and VAWG groups that directly support women. Ensuring that the tool will provide women with all the information they need, in their pockets, for meetings with housing staff, education, social workers, police and others, enabling to have the power of legal language in what are often difficult interactions. In one of these mapping sessions one woman told us:

“Given my past experiences I have really struggled with standing up for myself and my rights, I haven’t had any confidence. But now I know that it is the law for me to have my rights upheld, I feel like I can use human rights when I want to challenge a decision or try to get a better solution.”

You can read our blog about this project here.

Our tool is now ready to launch!
