The ALLIANCE works to support human rights to be embedded across health and social care policy and practice.

The ALLIANCE has championed equalities, human rights and a human rights based approach since our inception. Human rights are basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled. They enable us to live our lives with dignity and participate fully in society. Ensuring everyone can access and realise their human rights is vital to the health and wellbeing of both individuals and society as a whole.

Our aim is to mainstream equalities and human rights through all our work, make the application of human rights more accessible, and channel human rights concerns and areas of good practice across our policy work.

If you would like to discuss our work on equalities or human rights further, please email Lucy Mulvagh, Director of Policy, Research and Impact at
