Human rights matter. They are there to make things safe and fair for all people. They help us all to live the lives we want to live, whoever we are. Unfortunately not everyone understands what human rights are, or what having human rights means. Some people don’t get to enjoy their human rights. Some people have their rights limited. Some people’s human rights are abused. This includes people with disability. Human Rights and You has been developed for people who work in the disability sector. It will help you get a better idea about what human rights are and why they are important. Most importantly it will help you to understand how you can work in a way which supports the human rights of people with disability.
