As 2016 draws to a close, we wanted to look back on some of the things we've achieved. There's no doubt that this year has had its ups and downs but here's a list of some of the good things we've done: 

> Sent a letter to Prime Minister Theresa May on Human Rights Day signed by 164 organisations, calling on her not to scrap the Human Rights Act

> Designed 3 new guides on mental health/capacity and human rights for service users, including our first ever accessible guide 

> Produced 8 toolkits for practitioners working in mental health and mental capacity

> Published 3 pocket guides for people working in health and social care (midwifery, nursing and end of life care)

> Received unique submissions from over 90 organisations for our report to the UN for the UK's Universal Periodic Review, and launched the report, signed and endorsed by over 60 organisations 

> Organised for nearly 150 organisations to join with us, Amnesty UK and Liberty to pledge support for the Human Rights Act 

> Grew our Human Rights Alliance to over 160 member organisations

> Launched a new health and human rights online hub

> Upskilled voluntary organisations to advocate, inform and support beneficiaries all over the UK 

> Trained public services, including the Care Quality Commission, on human rights

Here's hoping 2017 is no less successful!
