Celebrating 70 years of Human Rights – action, resources and inquiry


Learning disability England is one of the 155 groups or organisations that has signed this letter to the prime minister asking her to commit to looking after those freedoms for everyone 

We know this is especially important for people with learning disabilities as we keep seeing examples where people’s rights are not protected or put first in how they are supported. Following campaigning including that led by families, people with learning disabilities and autistic people the Parliamentary joint committee into Human Rights will hold two evidence sessions about the treatment of people with learning disabilities and autism in Assessment and Treatment Units (ATUs) and other inpatient units. One of those is Wednesday 12thDecember

You can see a celebration of the Human Rights of autistic people and people with learning disabilities in the Rightful Lives exhibition

British Institute of Human Rights have a resource on Learning Disability, Autism and Human Rights you can download here
