Applying Human Rights Principles to your Advice Work

Wednesday, 27 November 2019 - 10:00am to 4:00pm

The Human Rights Act is a law that aims to protect individuals from having their human rights taken away or interfered with by the state. The rights protected under the act mirror those in the European Convention on Human Rights. The rights included are economic, social, cultural, civil and political and increasingly have proved useful when arguing for socio-economic rights such as a right to housing and social security, particularly in a climate of Welfare Reform. This practical, adviser focused, 1-day course will raise your awareness of how Human Rights law applies in the Generalist Advice setting including: • Social Security, Welfare Reform and Housing • Health and Social Care • Education • Employment
