When Debartri fled a violence ex-partner, with her two young children, she was denied emergency accommodation. Her social worker, Tim had BIHR's support, and so he knew how to talk to the Housing Department about the family's human rights. The legal duty to positively protect their right to life, and to be free from inhuman and degrading treatment meant the family got somewhere SAFE to live. 

BIHR took part in the Christmas Challenge 2017, where our amazing supporters raised a massive £3,271.75 through online donations and matched funds. Although donations are no longer being matched, you can still donate here to support our work.

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
