Human Rights Awareness

An introduction on Human Rights (aimed at senior staff and managers).


The aim of this training is to increase awareness of Human Rights, because increased awareness can improve experiences for service users living in services, for the employees working in services and for the service providers. Taking a Human Rights Based Approach can lay strong foundations for equality, adult protection and mental health legislation.

Human rights should not be seen as a risk or a burden, but as a tool for decision-making and a means to improve service delivery. Participants will learn about the Absolute and Qualified Rights that are most relevant to the health and social care setting.

Absolute Rights

Article 2 (the Right To Life)  

Article 3  (the right not to be subjected to torture, inhumane or degrading treatment, or punishment). 

Qualified Rights 

Article 5 (the right to liberty and security)

Article 6 (the right to a fair trial)

Article 8 (the right to privacy, family life, physical, psychological and moral well-being; home; correspondence)

Article 9 (freedom of thought, conscience, and religion)

Article 10 (freedom of expression)

Article 11 (freedom of assembly and association)

This training teaches participants to make decisions that are fair. The ‘FAIR’ approach was developed by the Scottish Human Rights Commission and is an excellent tool to assist in putting a Human Rights Based Approach into working practice. Not every unfair situation will be an abuse of human rights law but using the FAIR approach will assist in reaching a balanced solution and ensure that the dignity of the individual is at the centre of all policy and decision making.
