Human Rights

The National Care Standards will be developed using a ‘human rights based approach’. This means empowering people to know and claim their rights and increasing the ability and accountability of individuals and institutions who are responsible for¬†respecting, protecting and fulfilling rights.

The Human Rights Action Group on Health and Social Care have produced a number of case studies that highlight the work being carried out by various organisations to ensure people know, understand and exercise their rights.
