Of course this isn't acceptable, but it happened to Lorraine very recently. With BIHR's human rights support her advocate was able to challenge this situation. With a bit of knowledge and confidence about human rights law, the advocate was able to use the power of the law and raise the risk to Lorraine’s legally protected human right to not be treated in an inhumane or degrading way. It was this that got Lorraine a room with access to proper toilet facilities. A simple everyday action, but one that helped restore Lorraine’s dignity at a time when she really needed support, rather than feeling degraded.

Your support means BIHR will be able to visit towns and cities across the UK and make sure more people know their rights and how to prevent being treated poorly in health, care, education and in lots of other everyday situations.

Thank you
