At BIHR, we work with four main groups. These include people accessing services and their loved ones, community, advocacy and campaigning groups, public bodies, policy professionals and decision makers. As part of our 5-part action plan in response to the Government’s proposal to reform the Human Rights Act, we want to bring together people from across these groups interested in working together to protect our rights. We also want to provide a platform for you to share your concerns and ensure that your voice is heard.

Come along to our events to get involved!
